Nick has done it again! He has found a way to secure yet another bag. The entertainment mogul is making his way to daytime television. He will be hosting a talk show with Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury and will assist in the production of the nationally syndicated show in partnership with Ncredible Entertainment company, Cannon's production company.
The presidents of Debmar-Mercury Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement, “We are excited to be able to announce this collaboration with Nick, who has proven himself to be such a dominant creative and entrepreneurial force across film, primetime TV, music, comedy, stage and online platforms." After they saw him serve as the guest host for The Wendy Williams Show, they were confident that Nick would be able to put his own spin on a daytime talk show, adding to his long list of entertainment wins.
Speaking on the The Wendy Williams Show, Nick said he gives credit to serving as the guest host for his friend as the catalyst for his interest into having his own daytime talk show. Cannon said, “After leaving America’s Got Talent, I wanted to focus on developing my own talk show. I’ve always dreamed of a platform where I can speak to America and discuss pop culture, as well as the topics on everyone’s minds. When I had the opportunity to guest host at my good friend Wendy Williams’ show this year, I experienced the energy and excitement of a daytime talk show and instantly knew I found my audience."
Adding this talk show to his repertoire will continue to show how versatile and talented Nick really is. During the summer, Cannon started a radio show on Power 106, Nick Cannon Mornings in Los Angeles. He just finished serving as a host for The Masked Singer, which had more than 17 million views during its 2018 release. Nick also served as a host for 8 seasons on America’s Got Talent. Of course, we most notably know Nick for creating and producing the MTV series Wild ‘N Out, which he has be doing for the past 13 seasons. Even with this resume, Nick finds time to be a college student at the Mecca, Howard University.
Knowing all of this, we know Nick will not stop after the talk show. We are sure he'll find something else to do to occupy any other free time he has.
The new show is scheduled to launch in 2020. Congrats Nick, keep grinding.
