After four years as a judge on "America's Got Talent" Howard Stern looks to be ready to call it quits according to recent statements made on his SiriusXM Radio show this morning.

Stern has been a guest judge on "America's Got Talent" alongside Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum during his tenure on the show and today he says he believes he's finally ready to move on. He said that he's getting older now and NBC wanted an answer from him by July 4.

However, Stern believes that there is no use in prolonging the announcement and that he's made up his mind.

"Howard said he's going through his own career evaluation right now," according to MarksFriggin.

"Howard said something's got to give. He said that NBC has asked what his intentions are for next year. He said he told them that it's his last season."

He also insisted that NBC told him that they would not be filming the show in New York if he's no longer a part of the show.

This was the reasoning for the date of his decision because Stern says the network told him they needed time to line up other venues if he decides to pull out of "America's Got Talent."

In another surprising twist Stern said he heard that Simon Cowell, who is know for being a judge on "American Idol" and other talent shows in both the UK and the U.S., is making a bid to be a judge on "America's Got Talent." Stern said that he was told by his friends at SONY that Cowell wanted to take his job as a judge on the show and from the sound of it, this looks to be another driving factor in his decision.

"Howard said he thinks it's fair to say it's his last season on America's Got Talent," said MarksFriggin.

"He said Sirius wants him to do the show some more. Stern said he has to think that through. He said he has been made an offer in TV that excites him."

Stern has often mulled over his future on his radio show and often times he's wavered on the decisions in the past. That being said, this time when asked in many different ways by his radio co-host Robin Quivers the answer remained the same each time.

There is also another big decision in the line-up as his SiriusXM contract ends in January.

In most cases Stern always says he will resign for the radio contract. In the case of "America's Got Talent," Stern looks to have made his mind up.
