‘America’s Got Talent’ host, NCredible Entertainment founder
Nick Cannon has come a long way since his days as a star on Nickelodeon’s “All That” and spinoff “The Nick Cannon Show.” While judges have rotated in and out of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” Cannon has remained firmly seated as host and lively emcee of the tentpole competition series since 2009. Meanwhile, on cable, MTV2 revived Cannon’s improv comedy series “Wild ‘N Out,” which initially ran on MTV for four seasons. The fifth run of “Wild,” now hailing from Cannon and his manager Michael Goldman’s shingle Ncredible Entertainment, ranks as MTV2′s highest-rated series in network history and was recently renewed for a sixth season. Ncredible holds a first-look deal with NBC.
