Howard Stern is in the spotlight again, but this time there’s no scandal involved. Reports leaked this week that the radio show host has been scouted by America’s Got Talent producers to replace Piers Morgan on the judging panel, since Morgan has left to focus on his new CNN show. Creator and executive producer Simon Cowell stoked the rumors at The X Factor viewing party last night. When asked if Stern would take over, Cowell winked as he playfully told MTV News, “You’ll have to wait and see.” In 2010, Stern also propelled rumors that he would be replacing Simon Cowell on the American Idol judges' panel. But that proved to be untrue.
