Nick Cannon will host a syndicated daytime talk show
Nick Cannon is the latest celebrity to join the daytime talk show gang. The “Masked Singer” emcee has struck a deal with Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury to host a new nationally broadcast daytime talk show, set to debut in 2020. His production company, Ncredible Entertainment , will co-produce the series.
Currently presenting Fox’s hit celebrity singing contest “The Masked Singer,” Cannon previously hosted NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” for eight seasons and the MTV sketch series “Wild ‘N Out,” a show he created, for 13 seasons.
“We are thrilled to be able to announce this collaboration with Nick, who has proven to be such a dominant creative and entrepreneurial force in film, primetime television, music, comedy, stage and online platforms. “said Mort, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury. Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement on Wednesday. “Daytime audiences got to see that first hand earlier this year with his stellar performance guest who hosted ‘The Wendy Williams Show’. Now we can’t wait to see Nick put his unique spin on the conversation and add the day to his impressive list of accomplishments.
“After leaving ‘America’s Got Talent’, I wanted to focus on developing my own talk show. I always dreamed of a platform where I can talk to America and discuss pop culture, as well as topics that are on everyone’s mind,” Cannon said. “When I had the opportunity to host my good friend Wendy Williams’ show this year, I felt the energy and excitement of a daytime talk show and I knew right away that I had found my audience.”
