Former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan is to join Mail Online as editor-at-large for its US operation.
He will write for the site several times a week, in addition to his column for the Mail on Sunday.
He said: "The site is an addictive pleasure, that offers an extraordinarily wide and diverse range of stories from all around the world. It’s become my first stop for news each morning and multiple times throughout the day – as it has for many others, which is why 180 million people now visit MailOnline every month, 60 million of them from here in America alone.
"News should never be boring and Mail Online tells the stories of the day in a compelling, informative and entertaining way that grabs the interest of its readers. As Editor-at-Large (US) I plan on breaking down the biggest stories that matter to Americans and analyzing them in a way that will generate discussion and create debate.
"Writing was my first love as a journalist and being able to write on such a powerful, far-reaching and ambitious global platform is an opportunity I couldn’t turn down."
