NEW YORK, March 15 (UPI) -- Radio star Howard Stern says he has no plans to take over "Late Night" in New York from host Jimmy Fallon if Fallon leaves to head up "The Tonight Show."

Rumors have circulated in recent weeks claiming NBC is making plans for Jay Leno's imminent -- but as-yet-unannounced -- retirement from "Tonight" after his current contract expires next year.

One scenario being floated in the media has Fallon replacing Leno, while Stern takes over for Fallon.

"First of all, what an insult," the Huffington Post reported Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show this week. "[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 [expletive] 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."

In addition to working on his own radio show, Stern also is a judge on NBC's talent competition series "America's Got Talent."
