For the past two years, Nick Cannon has hosted the morning show here at 92.3 NOW, so it saddens us to bring you this news… After much consideration, Nick has decided to step down from “Rollin’” and will be hosting his last show today.
During his holiday vacation, Nick was rushed to the hospital due to kidney issues. He came back strong, but now he is having more issues with his health. On Wednesday he announced that he was hospitalized over the weekend for two blood clots found in his lungs. All these health issues have led Nick to come to the decision to give up the morning show.
Nick has released a statement for now, but will be discussing it further on his final show.
Under doctor’s orders, I have been asked to put my health first and cut back on some of my professional commitments in order to allow my body to get the rest that it needs to keep up with the demands of my multi-tasking schedule.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with CBS Radio and the 92.3 NOW morning show team and I would like to thank them for their unwavering support. I will continue to host my syndicated “Cannon’s Countdown” weekend show and look forward to contributing to 92.3 NOW whenever possible. Even Superman has to sleep.
We respect and understand Nick’s decision to step down from his day to day position as host of morning drive on 92.3 NOW, and fully support him as he takes on a less demanding role with the station in order to address his health. Everyone at the station and all of the CBS RADIO family wish him well, and look forward to his continuing contributions to 92.3 NOW.
