HOWARD STERN told listeners on his SIRIUSXM show this morning that he will be leaving "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" for other television ventures.
The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports that STERN said NBC asked for an answer on a possible return to the show's judging panel for next season by JULY 4th so it could book venues for taping the show. "NBC's already asked me what my intentions are for next year, whether or not I'd come back," STERN said. "I kind of told them ... this is my last season."
STERN did not specify where he might go on the television side, saying only that "I have been made an offer in television that excites me," but suggested that SIMON COWELL, who serves as an Exec. Producer of "AGT," be his replacement as judge.
