The King of All Media isn’t moving from his current primetime throne — for at least another season, anyway.
A source confirms to EW that shock jock Howard Stern will return for a third season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2014. Stern himself first broke the news on his “Howard 100” Sirius radio show, announcing, “After a lot of thought…and I say this with peace and love…I am going back to America’s Got Talent.”
Stern is the second AGT personality to sign on for the show’s ninth season. On Nov. 11, Nick Cannon confirmed on NBC’s Today that he will return as AGT‘s host, a role he’s filled since the talent competition’s fourth season in 2009. Season 8’s judging panel included Stern, Howie Mandel (a judge since 2010), and Heidi Klum and ex-Spice Girl Melanie Brown, both of whom joined the series last year.
