Piers Morgan studied Journalism at Harlow College. After a brief career at Lloyds of London, he joined the Surrey and South London Newspaper Group in 1985, where he worked as a reporter on the South London News, and the Streatham and Tooting News.
Morgan’s first major position in national media was as de facto editor of The Sun’s show business column, Bizarre. In 1994, aged 29, he was appointed editor of the News of the World by Rupert Murdoch, which made him the youngest editor of a national UK newspaper in more than half a century.
In May 2005, in partnership with Matthew Freud, he gained ownership of Press Gazette. The following year, Morgan launched First News, a weekly paper aimed at seven to fourteen-year-olds.
