CNN host Piers Morgan will answer hacking questions in front of a U.K. inquiry investigating media ethics, reports the Associated Press.
A publicist for Morgan, who previously worked as a U.K. tabloid editor, confirmed that Morgan will appear next week, the story says.
The inquiry was organized following the scandal over the News of the World’s phone hacking. The tabloid, now shuttered, was owned by News Corp.
Morgan worked at News of the World in the mid-1990s, and also had stints at The Sun and The Daily Mirror. He has denied ever knowingly using illegally intercepted phone messages for a news story, the report notes. Despite speculation and allegations, he has avoided being directly implicated in the News of the World scandal.
