Howard Stern is officially joining the panel of judges on NBC's competition series America's Got Talent.
The radio shock jock had hinted that he would be moving to the small screen, but the peacock network has finally made the big announcement. NBC said the following in a press release:
- â€œHoward Sternâ€™s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to â€˜Americaâ€™s Got Talentâ€™ starting this summer. Heâ€™s a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.â€
Stern is replacing former AGT judge Piers Morgan ... who left to focus on his CNN talk show. The radio personality will be making a reported $15 million while sitting alongside fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel.
