Nick Cannon Reportedly Scores New Gig as Morning Host at Power 106

If you called Nick Cannon a renaissance man, you probably wouldn’t get a lot of disagreements, because he’s an actor, rapper, stand-up comic, and TV host — and now you can add radio personality to that.

On Thursday, 92.3’s Big Boy said that Cannon would be taking his old morning slot at Power 106 in Los Angeles. Big left the station in 2015, and mornings were taken over by J Cruz’s “The Cruz Show,” until he also left for 92.3 in April of this year.

“I don’t want to put his name out there,” said Big, referring to someone who told him about Cannon coming to Power 106. “I’m like, ‘Dude, I am aware’ … Nick is my guy. So there it is. Nick Cannon is doing mornings over at Power 106.”

It appears Big Boy relayed the news prematurely, because Cannon hasn’t made the announcement, nor has he confirmed what Big said — at least not on Instagram or Twitter.

But people still left comments on Cannon’s page and sent him kind words about the potential new gig.

“Congrats on your job as host 106,” one person wrote on Instagram.”

“That morning spot @power_106 👏,” wrote another.

The last time Cannon had a radio job was in 2012 with his syndicated “Cannon’s Countdown,” a Casey Kasem styled-show where he ran down the hits of the week. But Cannon left that job due to health problems surrounding his lupus condition.

As it stands, he’s still hosting the Fox series “The Masked Singer,” plus he runs his sketch comedy show “Wild ‘N Out.” On top of that, the 38-year-old is completing Nipsey Hussle‘s documentary on the late herbalist Dr. Sebi.

There’s no word yet on whether Cannon will still host his podcast “NCredible Conversations,” however.
