After four seasons of being a judge on NBC's "America's Got Talent," Howard Stern is putting any form of hope that he will return to the show to rest by saying he will not be negotiating with the show during his SiriusXM Radio show.

"Howard said they were saying it was a ploy or a negotiation on his part to get more money," according to MarksFriggin. Stern has officially quit the show for further seasons but will finish up the current season.

"Howard said they think that's his M.O. but it's not. Howard said he can assure you that he thought long and hard what he wants to do with his life in the next couple of years."

Stern even said that the four seasons he has done on the show were particularly miserable because of the exhausting schedule.

He said that he enjoyed the people he worked with but as he gets older he needs to do what's best for him.

"He said America's Got Talent people came to him and said they needed an answer by July 4th," according to MarksFriggin.

"Howard said they can do the show $10 million cheaper in L.A. so he's not going to jerk them around. He said he's done and he'll finish out this season and say goodbye."

He had great things to say about "America's Got Talent" and how fair they've been to him and he's managed to gain a different fan base because of it.

So it looks like fans can expect a new judge for the eleventh season of "America's Got Talent." However, radio fans might have a better chance of Stern signing a new SiriusXM contract.
