Nick Cannon, who took over mornings at Meruelo Media’s Power 106 in Los Angeles in June, is already heading into syndication. Together, Skyview Networks and Meruelo will be developing Nick Cannon Radio for afternoons starting January 27 and Nick Cannon Weekends debuting February 2020.
Cannon says he’s ready to take his radio career to the next level. “I love connecting with Los Angeles every morning on Power106. The response and support has been amazing and very special; the natural thing is to take it to the next level with a new nationally syndicated daily drivetime and weekend show. The show will feature original comedy and conversations with the people driving pop culture. I am looking forward to working with Skyview Networks and my Meruelo Media family to now reach all of the U.S.”
Skyview COO Steve Jones said Cannon is one of the most accomplished, creative, and versatile entertainers in America and he is proud to be working with him and the team at Meruelo Media. “Nick is an influencer whose connection with audiences makes him extremely attractive to advertisers and radio programmers alike.”
Meruelo Media CEO Otto Padron says the partnership with Cannon is proof that Meruelo is committed to invest in the very best and most compelling entertainment in the world. “This content strategy, coupled with our carefully curated portfolio of heritage audio brands and popular personalities in the key market of Los Angeles, gives Meruelo Media very exciting syndication opportunities. Having a like-minded syndication partner like Skyview Networks is the perfect storm!”
