Morgan has been away from television presenting duties ever since he quit his role as a presenter on Good Morning Britain earlier this year.
He left the show after making controversial comments surrounding Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey.
"I've gone home," declared the TV host and author in a recent tweet, sent shortly after the news of his new job broke.
"Great to be rejoining Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation after 28 years. The place I started my media career, with the boss who gave me my first big break. We’re going to have a lot of fun…."
