Piers Morgan said that he began his media career more than three decades ago with News Corp. and that he was thrilled to return with a mega global deal. He lost no time praising Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of News Media Corp. In turn, Rupert Murdoch, the chief executive Robert Thomson, Rebekah Brooks chief executive of News U.K. and Keith Poole, editor-in-chief of the New York Post Group lavishly praised controversial Piers. Their mutual admiration and praise might be considered over the top remarks by others who don’t really admire or care for them or their brand of journalism.
Some of his assignments that are a part of the global deal include the following:
- Piers Morgan will host a global TV show that will air on FOX Nation in the nation and on Sky News, Australia. It also be available on a new TV channel called talk TV in the U.K.
- He will present several true crime series documentaries.
- He has signed a book deal with leading publisher HarperCollins U.K., owned by News Corp. following the success of his book “Wake Up,” which was a best seller.
- He will be a columnist for the newspapers: The Sun and The New York Post.
New UK’s London Bridge studios will product and film his talk show. On September 16, the company also announced early 2022 as the proposed date for the launch of talk TV.
Piers Morgan said that he was going home, and they were going to have some fun. The former host of Good Morning Britain (GMB) is not new to controversy. He had stormed of the set of the popular ITV morning show in the U.K. after he was called out for belittling Meghan Markle in his crass comments on mental health struggles and more on the show.
He stepped down from GMB, after refusing to apologize for his rude comments which was called out by the Duchess of Sussex and almost 57,800 other complainants. Earlier this month, British regulators cleared Piers Morgan of wrongdoing. However, crass is crass and class is class. Six months later, the broadcaster is back where he began with News Corp.
