Howard Stern Becomes New Judge on America's Got Talent

Howard Stern, talking about his just-announced job as the new judge on America's Got Talent said, "All of America is embracing this. They're excited. Everyone is excited."

Stern will start his long-rumored new gig next summer, replacing Piers Morgan.

INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent spoke to Stern on his Sirius/XM radio show Thursday.

Trent asked, "Was there concern or any discussion about how things you talk about on your show might affect the image of America's Got Talent?"

"None whatsover. They recogize that my radio show is something separate. They never once gave me a lecture about morality," said Stern.

America's Got Talent is actually moving production from Los Angeles to New York to accommodate the shock jock.

Kathy said, "Don't like him or his mouth!"

But Rebecca said, "All I can say is wow, I'll watch."
