Overview

The real story behind the man who scored one of the biggest gigs in television, replacing Larry King as the anchor on his CNN show
 
Piers Morgan's talents seem to know no bounds—he's interviewed scores of celebrities, he turned around the fortunes of a leading UK tabloid newspaper, he's been a judge on one of the most popular TV talent shows, and he's written several books. Here is the story of the man who seems to have the ability to reinvent himself again and again. It covers his meteoric rise through the ranks of tabloid journalism, from cub reporter to, at 28, the youngest national newspaper editor in the UK for more than half a century. It also cover the controversy when, in 2004 after nine successful years running the Mirror, he was fired after the newspaper ran fake photos of British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners. Always one to bounce back from adversity, Morgan then penned a successful book about his days as a tabloid journalist and went on to become the darling of UK TV, eventually moving to U.S. television with America's Got Talent and The Celebrity Apprentice.
