After a month of rumors, NBC’s America’s Got Talent has officially hired Howard Stern to replace Piers Morgan as a judge. Entertainment Weekly reports that the reality competition show will move to New York City, where Stern will continue to host his SiriusXM radio program.
“Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America’s Got Talent,” explained NBC. “Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.”
The show will return this summer where Stern will judge alongside Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. Nick Cannon will also return to his hosting duties.
