READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As his new book comfortably settles in on the coveted "New York Times" bestseller list, this evening "Piers Morgan Live" invites author Brian Stelter to share his enthusiastic insight on all things television and digital media.
Active on Twitter, the "New York Times" media reporter used the microblogging site earlier in the week to announce his success:
Just got great news: "Top of the Morning" is a New York Times bestseller. twitter.com/brianstelter/s…

Joining Piers Morgan "In The Chair," the "Top of the Morning" author shares some of the details of his non-fiction work, in particular his view on the initial promotion, and subsequent termination, of embattled "TODAY" show co-anchor Ann Curry.
"I don't get paid nearly enough to answer this question," prefaces Stelter, who covered the NBC morning program extensively for his book. "But I'd like to think I wouldn't have promoted her in 2011."
"That was the fatal mistake," Stelter continues. "Promoting her in the first place is where things started to go wrong. Removing her was the right thing to do by lots of different measures but it was just done the wrong way."
Watch the clip and listen to the interview, then tune in tonight at 9 as Stelter settles "In The Chair" for a primetime interview designed to cover all the news that happens when the cameras aren't rolling.
