On his radio show this morning, shock jock Howard Stern confirmed the rumors. That's right, he's headed to primetime! He'll replace Piers Morgan's spot on America's Got Talent.

According to RadarOnline, a tweet from his show's verified account read, "It's [official] – Howard just signed on the dotted line – he is now the newest judge on America's Got Talent! #H100" 
It's really no surprise considering Howard's been a fan of talent shows and talks about them on air, namely his faves American Idol and Dancing With the Stars.
The 57 year-old seems to define the word versatile! In addition to success on traditional radio and satellite, he's a bestselling author, had a number one movie with Private Parts and will now bolster into television.
