Piers Morgan has returned to Rupert Murdoch’s Fox media empire, where he first came from, after blowing up his position at iTV by storming off the set of Good Morning Britain after a coworker pushed back on his assessment of Meghan Markle’s mental health difficulties. Morgan stated on his Twitter account, which he brazenly characterizes as “BREAKING,” that he’s “gone home” to Rupert Murdoch’s media business after nearly three decades.
“Great to be rejoining Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation after 28 years,” Morgan tweeted. “The place I started my media career, with the boss who gave me my first big break. We’re going to have a lot of fun….”
As for the terms of the deal, Morgan will have his own TV show — just not on Fox News. The British anchor will host a primetime show for the Fox Nation streaming service alongside the likes of Tomi Lahren and Candace Owens. Morgan will also be published in News Corp.’s vast portfolio of media outlets. Via Variety:
Morgan will host a daily TV show that will run on weeknights in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia, as well as write a weekly column for Murdoch’s UK tabloid The Sun and the United States’ The New York Post, and present a series of true crime films.
The show will be shown on Fox Nation in the United States, talkTV in the United Kingdom, and Sky News in Australia.
Morgan is already being viciously hammered on social media, but nothing compares to The Daily Show’s reaction, which kept their eyes on the ball (s).
