Cannon is well known for his hosting experience. He currently hosts Fox’s number one show The Masked Singer and his popular comedy show on MTV, Wild ‘N Out. He also spent 8 seasons hosting NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
“Once I left America’s Got Talent I was like I want to elevate in a way where I can actually use my voice for good and kind of effect culture.” He told the Daily Show.
Cannon also revealed on Reality Check that he’s “an activist at heart.” He’s currently on track to graduate this spring with a degree in sociology and criminology. He spends a lot of time talking about prison reform, and the importance of education on his social media platforms.
“When I had the opportunity to guest host at my good friend Wendy Williams‘ show this year, I experienced the energy and excitement of a daytime talk show and instantly knew I found my audience.” said Cannon.
