Piers Morgan quits 'America's Got Talent'

Friday November 11, 2011

Piers Morgan has quit his role on America's Got Talent to concentrate on his US chat show.

Six years after starting the job, he is giving up his position as a judge on the show which made him a star across the Atlantic.

Last year he stepped down from Britain's Got Talent because of his commitments in the US.

He made his announcement with a message on Twitter, which said: "I'm leaving America's Got Talent after six wonderful years.

"Turned out that juggling's harder than it looks, so I'm going to focus on CNN."

Piers, who also fronts his Life Stories chat series for ITV, signed with CNN last year to take over from the respected TV veteran Larry King.
