LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "America's Got Talent" isn't getting more of Jerry Springer. Springer says he won't return as host of the NBC talent contest this summer. In a statement Thursday, Springer said he's leaving the show because of other commitments, including his syndicated talk show and a stage role. He didn't offer details about the play. Known for his freewheeling talk show, Springer got an image makeover when he appeared in 2006 on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" and won viewers' affection with his self-deprecating humor. The stint on "America's Got Talent" followed in summer 2007. Springer called his job on the high-rated show produced by FremantleMedia "an amazing ride." His replacement for the upcoming fourth season wasn't announced Thursday.
