Howard Stern in Negotiations to Replace Piers Morgan on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT

     November 10, 2011

It’s another one of those days where some big news is shaking up the reality TV department, and this time the show with some movement is America’s Got Talent. In case you hadn’t heard, Piers Morgan, who has been a judge on the competition series for six years, announced on Twitter that he would be leaving his post to focus on his CNN talk show instead. So who’s going to take his place? Well someone has to be brash, harsh and ruthless when necessary on the stage, so who better than radio shock jock Howard Stern? The Wall Street Journal reports Stern is currently negotiating a $15 million a year contract to join Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne at the judge’s table. Apparently the show might even move from Los Angeles to New York in order to make it easier for Stern to join the show and keep up his radio show which is based out of The Big Apple. Stern should bring an interesting voice to the program, but are network censors ready to deal with him? We’ll see.
