Piers Morgan new TV show start date confirmed after quitting Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan is to front a new TV show on a new UK news channel.

Following his exit from Good Morning Britain last year, Piers is joining Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and Fox News Media in a global deal.

He will front a new TV show Piers Morgan Uncensored on brand new news channel talkTV starting Monday, 25 April.

Piers said: “I’m delighted to now be returning to live television with a new daily show whose main purpose is to cancel the Cancel Culture which has infected societies around the world.

“I want it to be a platform for lively vigorous debate, news-making interviews, and that increasingly taboo three-letter word: fun. I also want it to annoy all the right people.”

Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of News Corp, added: “Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire. Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist and says what people are thinking and feeling.”

talkTV will come from News UK, owners of The Sun and The Times newspapers as well as talkRADIO and talkSPORT.

Rebekah Brooks, Chief Executive of News UK, said: “We are committed to providing choice for television and streaming viewers and bringing the best of our journalism to the screen.

“Taking advantage of modern technology, we can produce high quality shows at low cost.”

Scott Taunton, CEO of News UK Broadcasting, added: “talkTV will provide a rich mix of entertaining and informative shows that no other service provides.

“News UK’s brands already engage millions of people through print, digital and audio and we are using those brands to create video programming.

“We have some of media’s biggest names on our radio stations and in our newspapers, as well as some of the most articulate thought-leaders who reflect many different viewpoints.

“Some of the most talented people in news, sports and entertainment journalism will be taking part as contributors or creating original content for talkTV.”

Outside the UK, Piers’ new show will air on FOX Nation in the US and on Sky News Australia.

It will film in the UK from London Bridge.

talkTV will launch 25 April on Freesat, Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media and online.
