In what is sure to shock the PTC and others, Howard Stern made it official by announcing he is the new judge of "America's Got Talent" this morning.

Howard Stern replaces Piers Morgan and the show wanted Howard so bad, they are moving the entire show and other judges to New York so Howard does not interrupt his radio show, which is based in New York.

I am sure the NBC executives are extremely pleased.  NBC is struggling for a hit and the attention and controversy that will follow Howard and wondering what he will say next will entice people.

He is not as raunchy as he used to be and is a perfect choice for a judge.  Still, it is going to ruffle some feathers.

What do you think of the choice?-DocFB

Larry King announced via Twitter he is leaving "Larry King Live" after 25 years on CNN. 

He did the announcement on Twitter by first saying "It's time to hang up my nightly suspenders."  King's ratings have been low but then again, everything on CNN has been low-rated.  His contract was up this fall and it was rumored it would not be renewed. 

King is taking the high road by saying it is his decision and nothing else influenced his decision.  King has told he wants Ryan Seacrest to be his replacement.

From what we hear, Seacreast and "The Views" Joy Behr are in the lead for the job.  CNN says they will need 2-4 weeks to make a decision on a replacement.

Keep Piers Morgan in mind.  For those that don't know who he is, do a search.

25 years at one job.  Larry King is only 76 years old?  I thought he was in his 80's easily.  What do you think?  Was it time for King to retire?-Dr.FB
