Current “The Masked Singer” host Nick Cannon is stepping into the crowed waters of syndicated talk. Fox Television Stations will serve as the launch group for Cannon’s untitled show, which comes from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury. The show, targeted for fall 2020, will air twice daily on Fox-owned affiliates in some of the country’s biggest markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco. Debmar-Mercury is the home of long-running daytime talker “The Wendy Williams Show,” which Cannon has guest hosted.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to host my own talk show, and I’m fortunate to have found great partners in Fox and Debmar-Mercury,” said Cannon. “My experience with Fox as a producer and host on both ‘The Masked Singer,’ as well as the soon-to-air ‘Nick Cannon’s Hit Viral Videos,’ has been exceptional. I’m looking forward to continuing our amazing track record together.”
The focus on the series will be on Cannon’s take on the latest in trending pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.
