Piers Morgan's First Taste Of The Screen!
Piers Morgan began as a freelance journalist for the Sun and then the Daily Mirror, and during his time at the Daily Mirror, he got a taste of television via the BBC. Morgan had investigated the British "obsession with fame and celebrity" in a three-part series aired on the BBC in 2003.
It was a fairly deep-dive documentary into why the public consumes so much celebrity media and its effects on the celebrities themselves. "I’ve seen how the tabloids have fueled this talent-less celebrity age more and more, and the reason for that is that more and more of the public want to read about this sort of celebrity because they can see themselves being that sort of person."
For a series from 2003, it was incredibly prophetic on the future of celebrity and reality TV star obsession by the public.
Piers Morgan's Later Television Appearances
Piers then went on to co-host a Channel 4 current affairs show and reveled in being a judge on both America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent. He landed more and more television slots and would regularly be invited to debate on countless News Stations due to his harsh and intensely passionate arguing style.
Piers even replaced the great Larry King from Larry King Live and now has become a permanent co-host on Good Morning Britain alongside Susanna Reid.
