Piers Morgan revealed on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Tonight, that he will be departing the popular NBC series America’s Got Talent. There’s now a new report that Howard Stern is in talks with NBC to join the series as Morgan’s replacement in what could be a $15M/year deal:
Under the deal being discussed, Mr. Stern would earn about $15 million a year to join Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne on the judge’s table. “America’s Got Talent” is among the most popular shows on television during the summer, when it typically airs, drawing as many as 14 million viewers. Mr. Stern could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
