Howard Stern said he wanted Rosie O’Donnell next to him on the AGT panel, but NBC said there are no current plans for that happening. According to Deadline, NBC is not in talks with O’Donnell and there are no plans for her to be a judge on season 8 of America’s Got Talent.

Rosie O'Donnell AGTThe Huffington Post initially reported Stern’s desires to have O’Donnell as the third judge last week. “Rosie and Howard have had a tough past but now they are great friends, he thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to that show.” a friend of Howard Stern’s told The Huffington Post.

However, Rosie recently stated that she was in talks with NBC and is excited about the opportunity, “I am very interested in doing America’s Got Talent with Howard Stern and I am talking to them,” O’Donnell told The New York Observer. “Let’s see how that works.”

Rosie’s got Talent?

NBC confirmed today that Howard Stern will back on America’s Got Talent in the summer of 2013. Although NBC has not yet released any information as to who may be joining the judging panel, Howard has made it known he would love to be sitting next to Rosie O’Donnell.

Rosie O'Donnell Americas Got Talent“Rosie and Howard have had a tough history but now they are good friends,” a friend of Stern`s tells Huffington Post. “He thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to America’s Got Talent.”

“NBC wants to keep Howard happy, and the chemistry between the judges is what makes the show a huge success,” a network insider says. “Just think what Rosie did when she joined ‘The View’ suddenly the show became a must see on television. At the moment, a list of names exists, but if it were solely up to Howard, Rosie would get the job.”

The Huffington Post confirmed that if offered the position Rosie would definitely consider it.

Rosie O’Donnell leaving SiriusXM for OWN network

The issue has not received a lot of press, but Rosie Radio will soon be history on Sirius XM Radio. Rumors of a possible show on Sirius XM began to swirl shortly after O’Donnell made an appearance on the Howard Stern Show in the Spring of 2009. By Fall of that year Rosie Radio became an official show on Sirius XM’s airwaves.

Over the next 18 months months the show gathered a loyal following and was a popular addition to an already robust satellite radio line-up. Sadly for her fans, Rosie will be vacating the Sirius XM airwaves this June in favor of a new television career with Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.

When people think of Sirius XM they tend to bring up the huge content advantages that the company offers. Such a massive library of music, news, sports, and talk have allowed Sirius XM to proudly live up the slogan “The Best Radio On Radio”. Will the news of a Rosie O’Donnell departure shake things up? Most likely not. Her fans will certainly tune into Rosie’s new television show, but they will also find new compelling content on Sirius XM as well.

If you are a Rosie fan you still have a couple of months to catch her shows and explore the dial. No announcement has been made regarding what will fill Rosie’s slot on Sirius XM’s talk and entertainment channels.
