The net worth of the British broadcaster, talk show host and journalist Piers Morgan is said to be $ 20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, Morgan claimed to be worth £ 250 million, which would be the equivalent of $ 346 million, wrote in his Daily Mail column in March. He referred to his shares in ITV, the broadcaster that airs “Good Morning Britain”, where he was previously responsible for part of his net worth as a presenter. With this in mind, it is possible that Morgan is calculating its net worth differently than Celebrity Net Worth, or exaggerating for impact.
