What is Piers’ new TV role?

“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.”

In addition, Robert Thomson, Chief Executive of News Corp, said: “Piers believes passionately in the contest of ideas and the principle of freedom of speech…

“…and he delivers his perspective with a pithy puckishness that is compelling for a broad and growing audience.

“He carbonates debate with wit, whimsy and wisdom.”

Piers’ new show will air on talkTV in the UK.

The new channel will include a schedule of exciting new shows which they will announce in the coming months.

And if that’s not all, following the success of Piers’ book Wake Up, HarperCollins has signed rights for his new title and will publish in hardback, audio and digital formats.
