Piers Morgan denied a recent report that he was on his way out at CNN during an interview with shock jock Howard Stern.

Morgan’s full remarks on the matter:

“The rumors start because some mad blogger – on a blog site I’d never heard of – blogs ‘Morgan Facing Axe, Katie Couric Coming In’ – or whatever the name it is that week – and the reality is, I’d literally the month before had my fourth-year option picked up.”

The blog he has “never heard of” is the media gossip blog FTVLive, which reported in early October that CNN head Jeff Zucker was “actively looking to replace” Morgan.
