*Nick Cannon, currently the morning jock at WXRK in New York, is set to host a new nationally-syndicated weekly countdown radio show, according to Billboard.com.
The 30-year-old father-to-be with wife Mariah Carey will premiere “Cannon’s Countdown” on April 23 via CBS Radio stations and syndicated nationally by Citadel Media. The four-hour show will feature a mix of music and celebrity interviews.
Although he declined to reveal further details of the show, Cannon said, “Last week I spoke with Britney Spears and I had Chris Brown in the studio before that. Whatever is happening in pop culture, I’m there. CBS Radio has been an incredible partner. With the success we’ve had with my morning show, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to reach radio listeners nationwide.”
Chris Oliviero, the senior Vice President of programming at CBS Radio, said of Cannon, “Nick’s uncanny sense of humor and engaging style will bring a new and modern twist to the countdown format.”
