Piers Morgan Exits as America's Got Talent Judge

Piers Morgan is moving on from NBC’s summer competition series America’s Got Talent.

“I’m leaving America’s Got Talent after 6 wonderful years,” Morgan tweeted Wednesday evening, after making the announcement on his CNN program, Piers Morgan Tonight. “Turned out that juggling’s harder than it looks, so I’m going to focus on CNN.”

He went on to thank “NBC, Fremantle, and of course, my friend Simon Cowell, for giving me such a great opportunity. It’s been a blast.”
