Piers Morgan has a new job, tweets it as breaking news
The new job is Morgan’s first since his CNN show “Piers Morgan Live” was cancelled
TV personality Piers Morgan has some self-declared “Breaking News” and has been appointed as the Daily Mail Online’s editor-at-large for the United States.
The new job is Morgan’s first since his CNN show “Piers Morgan Live” was cancelled in March amid sliding ratings and complaints over his outspoken views on U.S. gun violence.
Morgan will “write several times each week, bringing his own experience and perspective to bear on the big U.S. stories of the moment,” the Mail revealed on Tuesday.
Morgan took to Twitter to spread the news, saying “Breaking News: I have a new job.”

He also commented on the new role as part of the Daily Mail’s official statement.
“News should never be boring and MailOnline tells the stories of the day in a compelling, informative and entertaining way that grabs the interest of its readers,” Morgan said. “As Editor-at-Large (U.S.) I plan on breaking down the biggest stories that matter to Americans and analyzing them in a way that will generate discussion and create debate.”
Morgan officially left CNN in September, as his contract ended.
