CNN talk show host Piers Morgan announced Wednesday he was quitting as judge of NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
“I’ve been a judge since the show began six years ago, I’ve loved every single second, but I’ve discovered that juggling, to my surprise, really is a bit more difficult than I thought,” he said on Piers Morgan Tonight . “So I’m gonna focus on what will be a huge year here at CNN, with the upcoming election.”
Morgan also had a special message for the Academy as they search for a new host of the 2012 Oscars.
“Well, members of the Academy, I’m available. My schedule just cleared a bit, because I can exclusively reveal that I’m leaving America’s Got Talent.”
