    NBC's "America's Got Talent" is moving from New Jersey to New York City's Radio City Music Hall.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Wednesday.

    The eighth season of the popular talent competition will air live from the landmark theater twice a week, starting July 23.

    The show is relocating from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

    At his "America's Got Talent" press conference, Howard Stern chats about making out with Matt Lauer's forehead on the "Today" show. Also, why does he say he will be the judge that audiences will care about? Plus, is he concerned his fans will be turned off by him being on the NBC reality series?

    Cuomo says the move will create more than 500 jobs and generate $100 million each season. New York State recently extended its Film Production Tax Credit to attract television shows to the state.

    Supermodel Heidi Klum was recently added to "America's Got Talent" as a judge. Klum will take her place on the panel alongside fellow new addition and former Spice Girl singer Mel B. and returning judges Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.
