Nick Cannon to host his own talk show

Nick Cannon is set to host his own daytime talk show.

The 38-year-old actor and rapper – who currently hosts The Masked Singer and Wild ‘N Out – is set to host and produce a new talk show that will be nationally syndicated to various networks in the United States (US).

Nick’s show is being put together by Lionsgate Debmar-Mercury, and will see the star – who also previously hosted America’s Got Talent – hit screens next year.

He said in a statement, “After leaving America’s Got Talent, I wanted to focus on developing my own talk show.

“I’ve always dreamt of a platform where I can speak to America and discuss pop culture, as well as the topics on everyone’s mind. 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.”

Nick says he originally wanted to host a “late night talk show”, but will instead hope to incorporate a late night “vibe” into his daytime series through “telling jokes”.
