Page Six says Stern's in talks re AGT

COAST TO COAST? If it’s on Page Six, it must be true. According to the gossip column, the rumors are true, and Howard Stern is in advanced talks with NBC to take Piers Morgan’s seat on America’s Got Talent—but he’s demanding $20 million and a geographic shift. A source tells the Post, “[Simon] Cowell really wants Stern on the judging panel. The talk on the production is that it’s practically a done deal. But Stern is asking for a huge fee, and he can’t travel because of his radio show. He wants the show to move to New York.” Stern plans to continue hosting his radio show on Sirius XM in N.Y., and he says moving the production to the East Coast could be the only way he could fully commit. However, fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel have strong family ties to LA, and moving the production could unsettle the crew. Said another source, “Moving it to New York would mean over 100 people losing their jobs if they don’t move with the show.” But a third source countered, “Sharon and Howie are enthusiastic about moving to New York. NBC are handling the negotiations directly with Howard. If the deal gets done, it would be the only entertainment franchise show in New York right now.” (11/23a)
