Outspoken radio DJ Howard Stern will appear on the judging panel 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.
