New global TV show will air on weeknights on TalkTV in the UK and Stream on FOX Nation in the US and on Sky News Australia
Everyone in the UK will be able to access the show on TalkTV, live or on-demand, either on their television or personal device
Piers Morgan Uncensored will launch later this spring
News UK Broadcasting today unveils the name and brand identity of its new global flagship show with Piers Morgan: Piers Morgan Uncensored.
The new show, fronted by the former Good Morning Britain and CNN anchor, will be a fearless forum for lively, intelligent debate and agenda-setting interviews; celebrating free speech and the right for people to share their views. This is the first show of its kind broadcast across three separate continents.
The new, sixty minute daily show will be broadcast in the UK on TalkTV, streamed on FOX Nation in the US and aired in Australia on Sky News Australia.
Piers said: “A year ago today, I was forced to leave a job I loved, at the peak of its success, for having the audacity to express an honestly held opinion. This shouldn’t happen in any democracy supposedly built on the principles of free speech and freedom of expression. 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.”
For over 30 years, Piers has interviewed the biggest stars, world leaders and personalities from Nelson Mandela, Oprah Winfrey, Professor Stephen Hawking, Beyoncé and the Dalai Lama to US Presidents: Clinton, Carter and Trump. His interviews have created news across the world and his outspoken defence of free speech has created international debate.
Winnie Dunbar Nelson, Executive Editor, TV at News UK, said: “Piers Morgan is a fearless journalist and broadcaster with an unmatched ability to engage audiences internationally. With Piers Morgan Uncensored, we’ll be doing something genuinely new – a daily show created for a global audience.”
Everyone in the UK will be able to access TalkTV and its programming, live or on-demand, either on their television or on any personal device. The channel will be streamed live and made widely available on all platforms, including linear TV and OTT, with content available across social media as well as News UK’s own broad inventory of websites and apps.
TalkTV will offer a mix of must-watch prime time programming. There will be news bulletins, sports and entertainment shows, as well as current affairs, debate, opinion and documentaries which call on the expertise of journalists and broadcasters from across News UK’s roster of brands, including talkRADIO, talkSPORT, Virgin Radio, Times Radio, The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times, with a major new straight and balanced news show hosted by award-winning journalist and broadcaster Tom Newton Dunn.
News UK continues to hire some exceptional new talent to join a schedule of prime time programming for TalkTV, with further announcements in the coming weeks.
