Nick Cannon‘s quest to conquer a multitude of TV formats has been gifted a gargantuan boost. For, it’s been announced that the media maestro has nabbed his own daytime talkshow.
Deadline reports that Cannon will be adding talkshow host to his packed list of gigs (which currently includes ‘Wild N’ Out,’ hosting duties on ‘The Masked Singer’ and an anchoring spot on Power 106’s ‘Nick Cannon Mornings’).
For his foray into talk (which’ll hit screens in 2020), the star has teamed with Debmar-Mercury (producers of The Wendy Williams Show) and will co-produce under his Ncredible Entertainment umbrella.
Speaking on the venture, Cannon said in a statement:
“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.”
Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein added:
“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. The daytime audience got to see that firsthand earlier this year with his stellar performance guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show. Now we can’t wait to see Nick put his own unique stamp on talk and add daytime to his impressive list of accomplishments.”
Huge congrats to Nick! His hustle and longevity are undeniable.
