Howard Stern is going prime-time.

The hugely popular radio morning man will join NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” next season as part of an overhaul of the show that will include moving it to New York.

Stern has been talking about taking the job since CNN host Piers Morgan said he would leave the show last month.

“I take judging very seriously,” Stern told his SiriusXM Satellite Radio listeners Thursday morning.

He said he was signing the contract on the air as he talked.

NBC followed with the official announcement.

“Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to ‘America's Got Talent’ starting this summer,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC. “He's a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.”

The show, which has been Los Angeles-based since its inception, will move to New York to accommodate Stern’s arrival.

He will also continue to host his radio show.

Stern, a pop-culture aficionado, has long had a good relationship with “America’s Got Talent” executive producer Simon Cowell.

He’s also talked extensively over the years about wanting to be a judge on either “America’s Got Talent” or “American Idol.”

“America’s Got Talent” was the top-rated non-sports series on NBC, ABC or CBS during the summer. Indeed, last summer was its best run ever.

Getting Stern into the mix immediately adds an extra level of buzz for the series.

Stern likely will use his radio show to talk about “America’s Got Talent.” Likewise, his appearance on the show alone is expected to draw new viewers to the series.

When Morgan announced he was leaving the show, Stern immediately began talking about wanting the job. The watchdog group the Parents Television Council immediately jumped in and said his hire would be bad for humanity. No doubt, that drumbeat will continue, helping drive even more viewers to the show.
