Howard Stern Says He’s Leaving ‘America’s Got Talent’

It looks like Howard Stern is leaving “America’s Got Talent” — or, at least he says he is.

The judge of the NBC competition show revealed the news on his radio show Wednesday morning that he would leave after the end of the current season, which wraps up this summer.

“I told them, this is my last season,” Stern said on his SiriusXM show. “I am going though my own career evaluation right now. I’m just too f–ing busy.”

Stern has been on “America’s Got Talent” for four seasons. The radio host, however, previously admitted that he “really did struggle” in the decision to sign on for the current season.

Don’t worry, though — Stern always has a replacement in mind, one with extensive experience in judging talent competition shows. He threw the name of Simon Cowell, who served as a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent,” into the ring.

NBC had no comment.
