Southampton shock jock Howard Stern confirmed Tuesday on his Sirius XM radio program that he will return to America’s Got Talent for a third season.

Stern joined the cast of judges in 2012. Going forward to 2014, his fellow judges Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Melanie Brown are all expected to return.

Stern says that he struggled with the decision. His first season was intended as a one-off, but he went back for a second, he says, and now this thing he decided to do for fun has become more of a job. After talking it over with his friends and wife Beth Stern, he said he finally settled on coming back.

He also confirmed the decision in a Twitter exchange with host Nick Cannon.
