Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of News Corp, said: “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.
“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.”
News of Piers’ new job comes the day after he won the Best News Presenter award at the annual TRIC Awards.
Piers was up against his former Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid in the category, and the pair were reunited for the first time since he left GMB at the bash.
After winning the award, Piers invited Susanna on stage during his acceptance speech.
“I felt it was right to share with Susanna,” he said. “I haven’t seen Susanna since I left so it was very emotional.
“You get very close to someone when you work that closely together. Not many men have seen Susanna Reid at 5am in her curlers.”
