As per the Independent, Piers said: "I'm thrilled to be returning to News Corp, which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago.

"Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.

"I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged.

"I'm also delighted to become a columnist for The Sun and the New York Post, two brilliantly successful and popular newspaper brands.

Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp, added: "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.
