Howard Stern: “I’d be better than the Hoff” on “America’s Got Talent”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Howard Stern fans, by definition, can’t get enough Howard Stern. They’d like to see their “King of All Media” on as many pop-culture programs as possible, extending his brand beyond the Sirius/XM Satellite radio program he hosts most mornings.

And Stern, for his part, feeds the need. He floats rumors that “American Idol” wanted him to replace Simon Cowell. And now the talk-radio icon’s telling his listeners that he’s in talks to replace Piers Morgan on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

“I think I’d be better than the Hoff [David Hasselhoff], but who knows?,” Stern told the New York Post’s Page Six earlier this week at the New York premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. “But now, there’s nothing to report about it.

“No one’s told me anything. I heard that they want me for the job . . . I’m honored that they would consider me,” he added.

But are they really considering him? Or is it yet another brilliant attempt by Stern to keep his name in the headlines by attaching himself to a high-profile job vacancy?

No one’s better than Stern at creating headlines … even where a headline might not be. Until NBC responds, take this with a grain of salt. But just to be safe, the Parents Television Council appealed to NBC not to “abandon and offend its family audience” by hiring Stern for the show.
