NEW YORK (AP) -- 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.
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.
