CBS RADIO Top 40/Mainstream WXRK (92.3NOW FM)/NEW YORK morning star NICK CANNON, who already hosts the TV talent show, America's Got Talent, has joined the cast of new NBC-TV sitcom, Up All Night, in a recurring role. The comedy stars CHRISTINA APPLEGATE as TV talk show producer and "newly minted" working mother.
CANNON will portray CALVIN, "the wildly popular co-host to talk show star Ava (MAYA RUDOLPH), who can't help but be jealous of the attention her energetic sidekick receives," TV GUIDE reports. CANNON will continue to host America's Got Talent, which is also on NBC. In fact, the sitcom will debut on SEPTEMBER 14th, following the season finale of the talent show.
Meanwhile, back a WXRK, with SARAH LEE being promoted to morning show co-host, RYAN JOHNSON, most recently with ACE & TJ at WNKS/CHARLOTTE, comes aboard as morning show producer.
