Fox News Hires Piers Morgan For New Nightly Show

Fox News reports:

Veteran broadcaster Piers Morgan will join News Corp and FOX News Media in a global deal that includes content across a variety of platforms, including FOX Nation and the New York Post. “Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire,” News Corp chief executive Rupert Murdoch said.

“Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist and says what people are thinking and feeling,” Murdoch added. “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.”

Morgan will launch a new television program in early 2022 that will air on weeknights in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. He will also publish two weekly columns for the New York Post and The Sun and pen a follow-up to his bestselling book, “Wake Up,” for HarperCollins.

Earlier this year, Morgan stalked off the set of Good Morning, Britain in the middle of his show after facing backlash from a co-host for his attacks on Meghan Markle. Hours later the network said, “Bye, Felicia.”
