Piers Morgan To Leave 'America's Got Talent' To Focus On CNN Show

Piers Morgan will leave NBC's 'America's Got Talent' so he can focus full-time on his CNN show.

Morgan made the announcement on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' Wednesday night as he explained juggling taping for both shows hadn't been as easy as he expected.

"Well, members of the Academy, I'm available!" he quipped. "My schedule just cleared a bit because I can reveal that I'm leaving America's Got Talent. I've loved every single second but discovered that juggling, to my surprise, really is a bit more difficult than I thought."

"I'm going to focus on what's going to be a huge year here at CNN, with the upcoming election. I'd like to thank NBC, Fremantle and my great friend Simon Cowell for giving me such a wonderful opportunity on that amazing show."

"And I want to congratulate Sharon, Howie and Nick, who will doubtless be very relieved to learn they no longer have to work with me," he joked.

The 46-year-old had been a judge on the NBC talent show since it started in 2006.
