Recently, Nigel told Access Hollywood that he has nothing against Howard personally, but wasn’t sure the gregarious radio personality has an adequate background in the biz to judge a televised talent competition. “I think he’ll be honest,” Nigel said. “But what he actually knows about show business and talent and acts, I don’t know.”
America’s Got Talent executive producer Simon Cowell said he also likes Howard, but things are complicated when bringing a new cast member into the mix. “There’s a lot of people who make decisions on this stuff. Money’s got to work, schedules [have] got to work. There might be a few twists and turns still.”
For now, we’ll have to wait and see if Howard replaces Piers or if another candidate comes along. What do you think? Is Howard Stern the right individual to fill Piers soon to be empty judges’ chair on America’s Got Talent?
