Morgan's last time on morning television ended abruptly after causing much controversy over comments he made about Meghan Markle in March 2021.
Back after a one year hiatus
The TV presenter upset the public so much with his harsh criticism of Markle that Ofcom reported a whopping 58,000 complaints—a record-breaking figure for the UK's communications regulator. Viewers were outraged over him denying all of Markle's claims made during the Oprah Winfrey interview, in which she expressed having battled with mental health issues.
He has now found himself a new hosting gig that will be broadcasted in three different continents daily. The controversial reporter has said:
I am launching a new global daily TV show for Rupert Murdoch’s news corporation in America, starting in the spring. It will air daily in the UK, daily in the US and in Australia as well so I will be a tri-continental irritant which is something I have been aspiring to be for quite some time.
The real Piers Morgan
Since his departure, Morgan has stated having been displeased with the inability to voice his opinions, however radical they may be. In an interview announcing his new job, he expressed being excited to finally having the opportunity to be as open about his personal opinions as he wants. He said:
I haven’t been on breakfast television for nearly a year… My one question is, am I allowed to have an opinion, because that was the problem before.
Its going to be opinion, debate, big interviews, so if you’ve missed me on morning TV, I’m sorry but I’ll be back very soon. If you haven’t missed me, I’m not sorry.
