Morgan began his journalism 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 the 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.
He may be divisive but Morgan’s ability to bring the brutal interview techniques of a tabloid hack to the breakfast television sofa means people pay attention.
Along with his early-morning gig, the former Daily Mirror editor also writes a column for MailOnline which he almost immediately makes available to his 5.2 million Twitter followers. Politicians had to face Morgan on Good Morning Britain and answer tough questions about Brexit – none of them relished the challenge.
His brazen confidence in his opinions and his relentless pursuit of ‘interesting answers’ made him one of the most listened to voices during Brexit.
