Piers Morgan net worth and salary: Piers Morgan is a British journalist and newspaper editor who has a net worth of $20 million. Piers Morgan was born on March 30, 1965 in Newick, East Sussex, England. He attended the Chailey School and Harlow College before landing a job at a newspaper called the South London News. From there he was recruited to write the "Bizarre" section of Rupert Murdoch's "The Sun" newspaper. In 1996, Piers was hired to be the editor of The Daily Mirror. He was 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. In 2011 Morgan took over Larry King's post at CNN with a new show of his own called "Piers Morgan Tonight". The show never really found an audience and after a little more than two years on the air will be canceled at some point in early 2014. Over the years, Piers has been involved in a number of feuds with celebrities who have found his tactics to be ethically questionable. He was also named in the infamous British phone hacking scandal which involved the Daily Mirror while it was under his editorial control.
