Now FM Morning Man Nick Cannon Adds National Countdown to Resume

Nick Cannon, the multi-faceted entertainer and morning show host at 92.3 NOW, has been named the host of weekly countdown show broadcast on CBS Radio stations nationwide.

Each week, there will be two recorded versions of Cannon’s Countdown. The program is specifically geared to CHR Pop/Rhythmic and Urban stations with a mix of music and celebrity interviews. The four-hour and three-hour shows, respectively, are set to debut in two dozen markets the weekend of April 23.  

Cannon’s Countdown, which will be heard on 92.3 NOW/WXRK, is launching an online destination showcasing the program’s top songs from either formats.

The website is also the must-stop place for daily digestible lists of what is hot in pop culture and will chronicle lists of Cannon’s favorite things, while providing his point of view on the latest entertainment and fashion news, event listings, new music, and cool gadgets.

Additionally through the website, Cannon’s Countdown will offer streaming online, and through the application for a variety of mobile devices.

“CBS Radio has been an incredible partner,” says Cannon. “With the success that we’ve had together with my morning show on 92.3 NOW in the New York City tri-state I am thrilled to now have the opportunity to reach radio listeners nationwide with my new Cannon’s Countdown show.”

Along with his daily Rollin’ With Nick Cannon duties, Cannon also hosts NBC’s Americas Got Talent.
