It’s official: Howard Stern will be the new host of America’s Got Talent.
The longtime radio host announced it this morning on his show at approximately 8:20 am along with his agent Don Buchwald.
Stern will replace Piers Morgan, who quit the variety/talent show in order to concentrate on his CNN interview program.
The show reunites Mr. Stern with his former employer, NBC who he worked for in the mid-eighties and was inelegantly fired from when the radio station and O and O property WNBC decided the King of All Media was too controversial for it’s airwaves.
“Believe me – I didn’t do it for the money” he told Access Hollywood.
