Business Report: TeenNick Chairman Nick Cannon

Cannon on being taken seriously as a young mogul on-the-rise

Multi-talented actor, comedian and entertainment industry executive Nick Cannon shares his story with host Caroline V. Clarke [2] on this week’s edition of the Black Enterprise Business Report [3]. Named to the Black Enterprise 40 Next [4] list of achievers under the age of 35, Cannon is America’s youngest television executive. As the chairman of NickToons [5], he’s charged with guiding the future of the brand from green-lighting programming to promoting shows and boosting ad revenues.

Among Cannon’s successful programming credits is the network’s HALO Awards [6], for which he’s the creator and talent. The show outperformed the network’s average ratings among teens (12–17) by more than 27% and total viewers by 36% in its time slot. The self-professed “Entrepre-tainer” simultaneously runs his own entertainment company and hosts a morning radio show on CBS Radio and NBC’s hit reality show America’s Got Talent.
