Morgan joins News Corp, Fox News Media
September 16, 2021
Piers Morgan will join News Corp and Fox News Media in a global deal, launching a new TV show in early 2022. Morgan will also join The Sun and the New York Post as a columnist. He will also present a series of True Crime documentaries.
Morgan said: “I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago. Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together. I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged. I’m also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands. I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun.”
Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of News Corp, added: “Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire. Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist and says what people are thinking and feeling. He has many passionate fans around the world and we look forward to expanding his audience in the UK, at Fox Nation, Sky News Australia, The Sun and the New York Post.”
Piers Morgan’s new show will air on talkTV in the UK, Fox Nation for US audiences, and on Sky News Australia. The show will be produced and filmed at News UK’s studios in London Bridge.
