Piers Morgan made the announcement today that he is no longer with CNN, after the talk show host turned down a two-year deal offered by the cable network, Deadline.com reports.
Morgan broke the story in a tweet, writing: “BREAKING NEWS: I am no longer a @CNN employee.”
In follow-up tweets, Morgan added: “I was offered a new 2-year deal by @CNN boss Jeff Zucker to host 40 big interview ‘specials’. But after considerable thought, I decided not to accept it – and to try pastures new.”
Morgan signed off from his prime-time show in March after enduring a ratings decline.
