NBC announced that Howard Stern will be back on “America’s Got Talent” next season.

This was after the shock jock announced the news on his Sirius radio show Monday morning.  Stern told listeners, “I felt I could not walk away.”

He is the first confirmed judge for next season; Sharon Osbourne has issue with NBC over how they allegedly treated her son, Jack Osbourne, and has said that she won't return. Fellow panelist Howie Mandel has yet to announce his decision.

NBC hired Stern initially at 20 million dollars to replace Piers Morgan, who found a new home on CNN.
