Howard Stern has rejected the idea that he would take over "Late Night" from current host Jimmy Fallon if Fallon were to vacate the slot in the event of Jay Leno's retirement, a rumor sparked by anonymous sources in The New York Post.

"First of all, what an insult," Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show Monday. "[After] all the years of my career. I'm, like, the biggest guy in radio. I've done film. I've done television ... I mean, they act like I'm some kind of fucking beginner or something. Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning."

The Post reported that NBC hired Stern as a judge on "America's Got Talent" to test him for a broad audience, and considered installing him as the "Late Night" host after he performed well on that show.
