America’s Got Talent is without question one of the most successful shows in TV history. Just the fact that it’s been running for nine years is proof enough that talent shows never get old.

This particular show has seen many contestants and judges come and go, and has embraced it as a sort of tradition. And now that tradition continues, as producer Howard Stern has announced that he’s leaving his judge seat for good.

During a broadcast of The Howard Stern Show, Stern said: “I’m going through my own career evaluation right now…In all seriousness, I’ve told you, I’m just too f****** busy…something’s got to give.”

“NBC’s already asked me what my intentions are for next year, whether or not I’d come back, I kind of have told them I think this is my last season. Not I think, this is my last season.”

Howard Stern has been one of the judges that sat the longest on America’s Got Talent. He came in 2011 to replace Piers Morgan and he was a colleague to Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Nick Cannon.

Stern further discussed his reason for resigning: “I have been made an offer in television that excites me. Excites me to no end. I think it would be a great opportunity, but I can’t do America’s Got Talent, the radio show and this television opportunity.”

Considering the above, we’ll still hear Howard on his radio show on Sirius XM, but we guess we’ll be seeing him on TV in something that’s not America’s Got Talent.
