Washington: Shock jock Howard Stern has officially replaced Piers Morgan as the judge for NBC’S ‘America’s Got Talent’.

His selection was announcement on Thursday and it was also revealed that the show will move from Los Angeles to New York so that Stern will be able to continue his satellite radio show.

Stern, 57, immediately made it clear that he will shake things up on the show but will not do anything that will give groups like the conservative Parents Television Council any ammunition to file complaints with the US independent agency for competition, the media, public safety and homeland security the FCC.

Stern will reportedly earn about 15 million dollars annually to appear on the talent show but he insisted he did it because he likes the show.

“I didn’t do it for the money,” Contactmusic quoted Stern as saying.

“I did it because I like the show and I need to be a judge,” he added.
