Nick Cannon found himself at the center a media storm this week when controversial comments made about race and Jewish lineage on a June podcast swam to the surface and went viral.
The fall-out – which included an initially defiant stance from the star – saw ViacomCBS sever ties with him. Seemingly taking away his ‘Wild N’ Out’ show in the process.
In a rapidly evolving series of events, Cannon demanded full ownership of the MTV show and levelled a number of accusations at the media giant. Only to shortly after issue a lengthy apology for his initial remarks.
The entire episode left many wondering what this could spell for the rest of his many ventures.
Well, FOX have confirmed that he will remain in place as host of ‘The Masked Singer.’
And now, the entities behind his freshly announced syndicated daytime talkshow, have echoed similar sentiments. Although, in recognising the severity of his present predicament, they’ve pushed its launch back.
Full story below…
As reported, Cannon has – by way of his Ncredible Entertainment imprint – teamed with Lionsgate and Debmar-Mercury (who produce the Wendy Williams Show) to helm his own daytime talker.
Hotly anticipated, the series was set to debut on September 21st. However, it’s now been pushed back.
In a joint statement, Lionsgate and Debmar-Mercury said:
“The Nick Cannon Talk Show will not debut this year. After conversations with Nick, we do believe that his public comments don’t reflect his true feelings and his apology is heartfelt & sincere. We want to continue the healing process as he meets with leaders of the Jewish community and engages in a dialogue with our distribution partners to hear their views. We are standing by Nick in our hope that by fall 2021 he will be able to use his extraordinary talent and platform to entertain, enlighten & unite his audience on the Nick Cannon talk show.”
