Meanwhile, another 'AGT' judge Sharon Osbourne begs Morgan to stay on the show by tweeting, 'Piers please don't go.'
"America's Got Talent" has already had a candidate for Piers Morgan's replacement. Just a day after the British presenter announced his departure, Howard Stern is reported to be in talks to join Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel on the judging panel.
Rumor has it, the deal that is being discussed could give Stern about $15 million a year to fill in Morgan's shoes. The 57-year-old presenter would still host his Sirius XM radio show, but since the radio program airs out of New York, NBC is reportedly considering to move "AGT" filming location from Los Angeles to the Big Apple to accommodate Stern.
While "AGT" is moving forward without Morgan, Osbourne seemingly still has not come to terms of the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host's exit. Shortly after her fellow judge made his big announcement on Wednesday, November 9, the wife of Ozzy Osbourne tweeted, "Piers please don't go."
A day later she wrote a similar message in a longer tweet, "I woke up this morning, thought I had a dream that Piers resigned. Now I'm waking up to the reality. Dont go. Never thought I would say this."
Morgan decided to quit his gig on "AGT" to focus on his CNN talk show which launched in early this year. Though he said he enjoyed "every single second" of his moment on the NBC talent show, he revealed that he discovered juggling is more difficult that he thought.
