Nick Cannon is known for his comedic antics, his stint in the music business and being Mariah Carey’s husband, but now the chairman of Teen Nick, is adding radio show host to his resume.

Nick will be hitting the airwaves to be ’92.3 NOW‘s morning drive host, weekdays from 6:00-10:00 AM, ET. He can be heard on-air and online beginning Tuesday, January 19, 2010. The four-hour program is said to feature a mix of the most popular music, celebrity interviews, pop culture and lifestyle discussions.

In between being a radio show host, Nick will tend to his other recent endeavor, his NCredible Entertainment media company. The company has several TV shows and films in development, and an expanding music label with rising artists such as the School Gyrls, RydazNRtist and Corey Gunz. In support of Gunz, the company has launched a partnership with MTV for a docudrama on the rapper’s life titled “Son of A Gun: A True Bronx Tale.” Details on that project are still forthcoming.

NCredible Entertainment is also producing a puppet show for Adult Swim. The puppet show is said to be “a hip-hop version of Entourage” about a group that lives together and is striving to break into the industry.

The media company has offices in Los Angeles and New York and is helmed by an all-star team of insiders including Tracy Nguyen who oversees operations, Ray Brown who controls the music division, and Dorian Graham the head of alternative television development.
