Howard Stern on His 'Leap of Faith' to 'America's Got Talent'

Though his judging experience is limited to decades of radio commentary on breast size and shape, Howard Stern is promising substance over shtick when he joins fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel for Monday night's season seven premiere of NBC's America's Got Talent. Already, groups like the Parents Television Council have condemned Stern's addition to the lineup.

"Hopefully America will like this and put everybody's fears to rest," Stern told reporters at a press conference yesterday, entering Manhattan's Friars Club as "Hail to the Chief" played over a loudspeaker. "I'm not a beginner. I'm an elder statesman now."

The 58-year-old Stern explained that he didn't take the job to alienate the show's audience of 15 million viewers. "I just love the show," he said, adding that he wants to mentor rather than pander to America's next big act.
