The Parents Television Council is up in arms after the announcement that radio shock jock Howard Stern will be joining the judging panel on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. The network announced Thursday that Howard Stern would replace Piers Morgan on the show for the next season. Morgan reportedly decided to exit America’s Got Talent in order to focus on his CNN interview program.
â€œHoward Sternâ€™s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to Americaâ€™s Got Talent starting this summer,â€ explained NBC alternative programming head Paul Telegdy. â€œHeâ€™s a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.â€
