Speaking about his new role, Piers tweeted: “I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago.
“I want my global show to be a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right of everyone to have an opinion, and for those opinions to be vigorously examined and challenged.
“I’m going home and we’re going to have some fun.”
In his personal life, the journalist owns a number of homes including two in the UK as well as a home in Beverly Hills.
It was thought that he paid a huge £5million for the American mansion back in 2011.
