Nick Cannon’s entertainment domination continues to build. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the media mogul landed his first daytime talk show. The syndicated program will launch in 2020 under the production hat of his Ncredible Entertainment company.
“After leaving America’s Got Talent, I wanted to focus on developing my own talk show,” Cannon said in a statement. “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.”
The business move arrived months after Cannon tried his hand at hosting The Wendy Williams show. He filled in for the veteran host after she went on hiatus to treat her Graves’ Disease. Recently, he joined the radiowaves for his self-titled morning show on Los Angeles’ Power 106.
One of Cannon’s first introductions to the entertainment business was through his relationship with Nickelodeon since the age of 16. It later turned into him becoming the chairman of TeenNick. In an interview with Forbes, the father-of-three shared how that gesture informed his future business decisions.
“They have always given me opportunities to be on the forefront of the business, so in 2008 I presented the idea to let me run the Teen network and once again my Family at Nickelodeon took a shot on me and allowed me to be the chairman,” he said. “It has been the greatest learning experience for me in this business and showed me the ropes on becoming a true entertainment executive.”
