Nick Cannon is having a great week after the news was announced that he has been given his very own daytime talk show.
He will not only host the show, but he will also produce the nationally syndicated program alongside Lionsgate Debmar-Mercury.
“After leaving America’s Got Talent, I wanted to focus on developing my own talk show,” Cannon said in a statement to EW.
“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.”
“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,” Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said jointly.
“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.”
His new show will launch in 2020.
