‘America’ won’t be hassled by The Hoff any more.

David Hasselhoff is leaving ‘America’s Got Talent‘ after four years as a judge on the NBC show.

“I am proud that I was part of making America’s Got Talent, the No. 1 rated show for the past four summers,” Hasselhoff tells People.

“It’s been a rewarding experience and now I’m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly.”

“I want to thank my friend, (executive producer) Simon Cowell, and everyone at NBC and Fremantle for the opportunity for four great years,” Hasselhoff, 57, added.

No details yet on The Hoff’s new project, or which new ‘Talent’ will fill his seat next to Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne at judges’ table.
