“The problem is, I hope your bosses are watching in, this network is paying him far too much to do nothing, so he doesn’t have to make up his mind,” the political broadcaster remarked.
Taking to Twitter, viewers have been sharing their thoughts on the new channel, with one writing: “Excited for the launch of @GBNews, a thought-provoking new channel representing the views of previously unheard audiences within Britain, especially in underrepresented communities. #GBNews.”
Another posted: “@afneil please don’t recruit @piersmorganfor #GBNews. I really like what the channel stands for and he will discredit it, he is a shouty bully that doesn’t let anyone speak.
“Some of what he says may be ok but ruined by his conduct, stick to decent people and you will succeed,” they added.
GB News will launch on Sunday, June 13.
