There’s another major shake-up happening at Fox News.
The conservative network has announced that Piers Morgan will be joining News Corp and Fox News Media in a global deal.
This will also include content across other platforms across the News Corp network, including Fox Nation and the New York Post.
Morgan, for the record, has been slamming Joe Biden lately, and his new platform could give him even more room to go after the White House.
Morgan recently slammed Biden for the “deadly Afghanistan fiasco,” warned if he “goes woke, he will go broke” by trusting liberal and ripped Biden for his “rambling, stumbling, dreadful” decisions on foreign policy.
Morgan will host a television show on Fox News airing in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, and write a biweekly column featured in the New York Post and The Sun.
“Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire,” News Corp chief executive Rupert Murdoch said.
“Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist, and says what people are thinking and feeling,” Murdoch added. “He has many passionate fans around the world and we look forward to expanding his audience in the UK, at FOX Nation, Sky News Australia, The Sun, and the New York Post.”
“Morgan’s new show will air on talkTV in the UK, FOX Nation for U.S. audiences, and Sky News Australia. It will be produced and filmed at News UK’s studios in London Bridge. Morgan will also present a series of true crime documentaries,” Fox News reported.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott spoke highly of Morgan in the announcement.
“Piers is an exceptional talent,” Scott said. “We look forward to him making an impact and exploring opportunities with him on all of our platforms, especially FOX Nation, where our subscribers will love his new show tackling the subjects everyone is talking about.”
Morgan released a statement saying he is “thrilled” to return to News Corp, which is where he got started in media roughly 30 years ago.
“Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together,” Morgan 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,” Morgan continued. “I’m also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands. I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun.”

Last month, the network announced that Jacqui Heinrich will serve as a White House correspondent covering the Oval Office.
“During her time at Fox, Heinrich has covered both the Democratic and Republican national conventions, Biden’s inauguration ceremonies, and all the major development on Capitol Hill from former President Trump’s second impeachment to the ongoing congressional debate over infrastructure spending,” The Hill reported.

Fox News also announced that Aishah Hasnie will be tapped to replace Heinrich in her former role as a congressional correspondent.
Fox News President Jay Wallace made note of the big moves, saying “we look forward to adding Jacqui to our outstanding White House team alongside Peter Doocy and are pleased to welcome Aishah and Alex to our exceptional Washington bureau.”
Last month, Fox News parted ways with legal contributor Andrew Napolitano after a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed by a production assistant.
