Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan's House

Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan is an English broadcaster, journalist, writer, and television personality who paid just under $5.4M for this house in 2011. Previous owners include Bryan Turner (founder of Priority Records), Leslie Moonves (CEO of CBS), and Lady Victoria White (widow of a billionaire British Lord). He is currently a co-anchor of the ITV Breakfast program Good Morning Britain from Monday to Wednesday each week.

Morgan began his career in Fleet Street as a writer and editor for several tabloid papers, including The Sun, News of the World, and the Daily Mirror. In 1994, aged 29, he was appointed editor of the News of the World by Rupert Murdoch, which made him the youngest editor of a British national newspaper in more than half a century. Morgan got his first major break when he was recruited to write the "Bizarre" section of Rupert Murdoch's "The Sun" newspaper. Then in 1996, Piers was hired to be the editor of The Daily Mirror. Morgan was eventually fired from the Daily Mirror in 2004 after refusing to apologize for publishing photos that had falsely showed British soldiers attacking a group of Iraqi civilians. This decision would lead to Morgan being viewed somewhat as a mistrustful figure. His ethics still in question, Morgan eventually took over Larry King's post at CNN with a new show called "Piers Morgan Tonight". The show never found an audience after his debacle and was canceled at some point in early 2014.

Piers Morgan has built a comfortable net worth of $20 Million. No wonder since while hosting Piers Morgan Tonight, Piers earned more than $2 Million a year. Morgan is now a common face on BBC known for his notable wit. Though his charm and charisma has helped him remain a well liked figure, his life was not free of controversy. His journalism often emphasized the cutting edge and the biggest hook, but some felt compromised ethics. One thing is for certain, his success cannot be contradicted.
