Congrats are in order for Nick Cannon!
Not only did he just signed on for three more seasons of his MTV show, “Wild’N Out,” he is taking things a step further. Cannon will host his very own daytime talk show. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Lionsgate’s Dubmar-Mercury production company was as impressed with his delivery as a fill-in for Wendy Williams that he was offered his own slot which will premiere in 2020.
“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.”
Cannon says hosting a talk show has always been a dream:
“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.”
