Howard Stern new America's Got Talent judge

Outspoken radio DJ Howard Stern will appear on the judging panelĀ for America’s Got Talent.

Stern is replacing Piers Morgan who currently hosts his own prime-time talk show on cable news channel CNN. He will join fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel. The radio DJ currently has a successful radio show on Sirius XM to which NBC are expected to accommodate this by moving the production of the show to New York.

“Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America’s Got Talent starting this summer” – Paul Telegdy, NBC President.

America’s Got Talent is due back on NBC next year and here in the UK on ITV 2.
