Stern follows Piers as Talent judge
Howard Stern will be joining the judges' panel on America's Got Talent, which will move from Los Angeles to accommodate the New York-based shock jock.
NBC confirmed weeks-old rumours of Stern's selection today. Stern, whose daily show airs on Sirius XM Radio, is replacing Piers Morgan.
Morgan departed Talent after last season. He joined CNN last winter as the host of a weeknight interview programme.
Talent is a summer hit for NBC, drawing as many as 14 million weekly viewers. Fellow judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne will reamin, while Nick Cannon continues as host.
