PIERS Morgan will be back on TV screens, and this time his giant forehead, that’s as big as his ego will be beamed across screens all over the Western world, and this time, it’s personal.
Ahead of the launch on the 25th April, the TalkTV host said: “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.”
“EXTRAVAGANTLY BRILLIANT” NEW SET
TalkTV unveiled his new set – designed by top set designers who have worked on shows such as The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert.
A former gym in Ealing, West London will be home to Morgan’s brand new show, and it looks amazing. No surprise, Erron Gordon, the man who created Good Morning Britian has a thing life has a thing for oversized all-American sets.
Gordon told The i Paper: “News and current affairs doesn’t have to be boring – it can be presented in an entertaining and engaging way.”
The former Good Morning Britain presenter was fired from ITV last year after he gave his opinion on Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview in which he said he did not believe the Duchess’ claims of racism against senior members of the Royal Family.
Since he walked off the ITV morning show, the news industry’s greatest and most successful media magnate Rupert Murdoch – behind Britain’s biggest newspaper The Sun and The Sunday Times and the most-watched cable news network in America, Fox News – has given him a job on his new venture, TalkTV.
“Rupert Murdoch deserves the credit for getting Piers. They have a 30-year history,” says Winnie Dunbar Nelson, Morgan’s producer at GMB and now his executive producer at TalkTV.
Scott Taunton, CEO of News UK broadcasting, claims that “there will be people watching Piers Morgan who can’t stand him”.
Murdoch has provided the money to create a product “that does credit to Piers and credit to the wider television service”, says Taunton.
