NBC announced on Monday that Howard Stern will return as a judge for a second season of America's Got Talent.
The 58-year-old outspoken radio host teamed up with fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel during his first season with the hit variety/talent show, which has been on the air since 2006.
"Howard Stern's towering presence and opinions on last season's show as a new judge made a dramatic impact and added a sharper edge to the fascinating developments on stage," said Paul Telegdy, president of NBC's alternative and late-night programming.
Auditions for the new season of America's Got Talentwill be held
in the coming weeks in cities across the country.
