NEW YORK (WNCN) — NBC will likely be losing one of the key judges on its talent competition show America’s Got Talent, which also could be moving to the West Coast.
Howard Stern, a judge on the show for four years, said on Wednesday that he won’t be back as the show enters its 11th season.
“I kind of have told them I think this is my last season. Not I think, this is my last season,” Stern said to Robin Quivers on his Sirius XM radio show, USA Today reported.
So far, NBC has declined comment. The show airs at 8 pm on Tuesdays on WNCN.
The show, America’s Got Talent, apparently moved to New York because that is where Stern lives, the newspaper reported.
“They said ‘Well, in all fairness, if you don’t come back, we don’t do the show out of New York. Then we’ve got to secure the venues in Los Angeles’,” Stern said, according to the newspaper.
Stern said that he had his radio show and a possible other TV opportunity to consider.
“We’d love to have you back. We love you,” NBC told Stern, he said on his radio show, USA Today reported.
Perhaps as part of the negociations with Stern, the show posted a large photo of Stern on their Facebook page on Monday saying “We love you, too, Howard.”
