Rapper/actor Nick Cannon's
TV career has been given a big boost - he's been named chairman of Nickelodeon's new network TEENick
The husband of Mariah Carey
, who was recently announced as the new host
of reality show America's Got Talent
, has signed a two year contract with broadcasting bosses, which will see him serve as creative consultant and director of the teenage-orientated firm. And Cannon is delighted with the appointment - because he scored his TV debut on the network's hit comedy show All That
in 1998, when he was just 18.
He says, "I started my career here at Nickelodeon and am so excited to be back, serving as an integral part of TEENick as the in-house voice and representative for teens everywhere. TEENick is their network and I am here to make sure this is an ultimate destination for and about them."
