Piers Morgan quits America's Got Talent

Piers MorganPiers Morgan has quit America’s Got Talent to focus on his CNN work (pictured right, his CNN series).

Morgan sits on the panel alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel – having been part of the panel since its first season in 2006. Morgan’s exit from the talent competition will mean yet another change in the line-up of presenters which has, over the years, included David Hasselhoff, and Barry Norwood.

“I’m leaving America’s Got Talent after 6 wonderful years. Turned out that juggling’s harder than it looks, so I’m going to focus on CNN.” – Morgan on Twitter

The former journalist’s exit from American’s Got Talent isn’t all that surprising. Morgan quit the British version to concentrate on his CNN work so it would follow suit that he would also leave the American series for similar reasons.
