More than six months after leaving the set of Good Morning Britain and later confirming that he would not be returning to the morning show, Piers Morgan is making his next big step in his career. On Thursday, the British broadcaster, who found himself embroiled in controversy over his comments about Meghan Markle, announced he was heading to Fox News to host a daily global TV show, a move that sparked much discussion about the social networks.
According to Hollywood journalist, Morgan signed a global deal with Fox News and News Corp.

The untitled TV show is set to debut in 2022 and will air on Fox Nation in the US, TalkTV in the UK and Sky News Australia. Executive produced by Winnie Dunbar Nelson, who worked with Morgan on Hello Great Britain, the show will also be sold to other territories.
“Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to build something new and very exciting together,” Morgan said in a statement. “I want my global show to be a fearless forum for heated debate and conversation to set the agenda, and a place that celebrates everyone’s right to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously considered and challenged. . “

ITV accepted this decision and has nothing more to add. Given this past controversy, as well as other controversies Morgan found himself in, the news of his latest professional adventure unsurprisingly sparked a backlash on Twitter.
