Nick Cannon has announced his plan to develop Nick Cannon Radio and Nick Cannon Weekends to debut in 2020. The multi-talented businessman is producing this in partnership with Skyview Networks and Meruelo Media.
“Nick Cannon is one of the most accomplished, creative and versatile entertainers in America and we are proud to be working with him and the team at Meruelo Media to launch Nick’s new syndicated shows,” said Steve Jones, president and COO of Skyview Networks said in a statement. “Nick is an influencer, whose connection with audiences makes him extremely attractive to advertisers and radio programmers alike.”
“I love connecting with Los Angeles every morning on Power 106. The response and support has been amazing and very special; the natural thing is to take it to the next level with a new nationally syndicated daily drive time and weekend show,” said host Nick Cannon. “The show will feature original comedy and conversations with the people driving pop culture. I am looking forward to working with Skyview Networks and my Meruelo Media family to now reach all of the U.S.”
“Our partnership with Nick Cannon on Power 106 is proof positive that we are committed to invest[ing] in the very best and most compelling entertainment in the world,” said Otto Padron, president and CEO of Meruelo Media. “This content strategy, coupled with our carefully curated portfolio of heritage audio brands and popular personalities in the key market of Los Angeles, gives Meruelo Media very exciting syndication opportunities. Having a like-minded syndication partner like Skyview Networks is the perfect storm!”
Nick Cannon Radio, which will be for afternoon syndication, will make its debut on Jan. 27, 2020, and Nick Cannon Weekends will start in February 2020.
Cannon has a long career showcasing his talent as a host, comedian, actor, producer, rapper, writer, director, deejay, philanthropist, children’s book author, and activist. The busy businessman currently hosts The Masked Singer on Fox, which debuted earlier this year and has already been renewed for two additional seasons, as well as his own variety-themed show on MTV, Wild ‘N Out, which is in its 13th season.
A launch date has been set for Nick Cannon‘s untitled talk show. Fox Television Stations will serve as the launch group for Cannon’s untitled show, which will be produced by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury. The show expects to launch fall 2020 and will air twice daily on Fox-owned affiliates in some of the country’s biggest markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco as it is slated to appear in 17 major markets, including nine of the top 10.
