Between his radio show and serving as a judge on "America's Got Talent," Howard Stern's plate is full.
However, after NY Post columnist Linda Stasi suggested the shock jock could be the cure for an ailing CNN in a recent article, Access Hollywood caught up with Beth Stern, Howard's wife, to find out if the radio personality-turned-reality TV judge would ever consider making the move to the network.
"[Howard] forwarded [the article] to me and I thought, 'That's a great idea!'" Beth told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman at the TBS/TNT TCAs in Los Angeles on Friday, when asked if her husband is considering taking on a show at CNN. "Howard on CNN? I'd like to see it happen."
If he were to sign on, Beth said she thinks Howard would rein in his usually rowdy self, and forego inviting "strippers" onto his new show.
"I don't know if that's gonna go over well. I don't think that he would bring strippers on! I think that he would take something like that very seriously," she said with a laugh. "I think it would be really incredible for people to see that side of him - which I think people are kind of seeing on 'America's Got Talent.'
Adding, "But I think on something like CNN it would be pretty awesome."
As for Beth, the blond beauty has her hands full hosting her own new show, "Spoiled Rotten Pets," on Nat Geo - and Howard is proud of his wife's new gig.
"He actually saw the first episode and he loved it," she said.
