Howard Stern has been rumored as a judge for many of televisions top contestant driven reality TV shows and on Thursday yet another rumor sprung from the ashes. According to the Wall Street Journal the king of shock jock radio may soon be a judge on the hit talent series America’s Got Talent.
While Stern has left lucrative judging paydays on the table in the past the newspaper says NBC officials are very serious about hiring the shock jock and have even discussed moving America’s Got Talent from Los Angeles to New York just so Stern will come on-board.
If Stern accepts the offer he will reportedly be paid $15 million a year for his time spent on the show, money he will earn on top of his multi-million dollar Sirius XM paychecks.
If the rumor is true insiders say Stern would replace Piers Morgan who announced this week that he would be leaving the show to focus his efforts on his fledgling CNN program which he took over after Larry King retired.
At this time news of the Howard Stern judging choice is just a rumor and there’s no guarantee that he will accept the gig.
I understand that Stern has made more than half a billion dollars during his radio career but honestly why wouldn’t he take $15 million just to walk down the street from his apartment and host a show where he sits around and criticizes people like he already does so well.
