“America’s Got Talent” doesn’t got Howard Stern anymore. At least, the NBC reality competition won’t have him much longer.
Stern, who signed on for “America’s Got Talent” in 2012, said during SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” on Wednesday that the current season will be his last as a judge on the show, citing a “career evaluation.”
“I’m going through my own career evaluation right now … In all seriousness, I’ve told you, I’m just too fucking busy … something’s got to give,” Stern said.
“NBC’s already asked me what my intentions are for next year, whether or not I would come back, and I kind of have told them I think this is my last season. Not ‘I think’ — this is my last season.”
Asked by sidekick Robin Quivers if the current season will be his last, Stern said, “I think it’s fair to say. I don’t want to hang them up. Yeah, it’s my last season.”
NBC had no comment for TheWrap on Stern’s announcement.
Stern went on to say that he’s received another television offer that he said, “Excites me to no end. I think it would be a great opportunity.” However, he added, it would be impossible for him to pursue the offer while also doing his radio show and “America’s Got Talent.”
