It’s official: Howard Stern will be the new host of America’s Got Talent.

The longtime radio host announced it this morning on his show at approximately 8:20 am along with his agent Don Buchwald.

Stern will replace Piers Morgan, who quit the variety/talent show in order to concentrate on his CNN interview program.

The show reunites Mr. Stern with his former employer, NBC who he worked for in the mid-eighties and was inelegantly fired from when the radio station and O and O property WNBC decided the King of All Media was too controversial for it’s airwaves.

“Believe me – I didn’t do it for the money” he told Access Hollywood.

We speak with Jim Fenhagen, who has also created sets for The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and ABC World News.

The shimmering blue and green wall of the set behind Howard Stern‘s mop of unruly curls was so mesmerizing I nearly lost the thread of his discussion, yet again, about the size of his penis. (“Hung like a raisin”)

Howard Stern Reiterates on Piers Morgan’s New Show That Jay Leno is a Thief

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Calls him a “crook” who “steals” jokes; “He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman’s feet”

In his interview on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight (airing Tuesday), Howard Stern goes after Jay Leno, accusing the NBC Tonight Show host of stealing jokes.

“Jay is insane. And Jay is a crook,” Stern tells Morgan, according to the New York Post. “And the world knows exactly what he’s up to. He steals a tremendous amount of material.
“He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman‘s feet,” he goes on. “I don’t know how he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings. It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”
Stern has long accused Leno of stealing sketch ideas.
In 2009, he said Leno copied his idea of inviting a chicken to predict football wins for the following week.
“This must be a giant ‘Punk’d’ on me,” Stern said at the time. “This guy’s ripped off like ten major things from my show. But the chicken thing we did for years.”
