Nick Cannon announced this morning that he is quitting his radio show, Rollin’ with Nick Cannon on 92.3 NOW, so he can focus on his health issues.
In a statement, Cannon said:
“Under doctor’s orders, I have been asked to put my heath first and cut back on some of my professional commitments in order to allow my body to get the rest that it needs to keep up with the demands of my multitasking schedule.”
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with CBS Radio and the 92.3 NOW morning show team and I would like to thank them for their unwavering support. I will continue to host my syndicated ‘Cannon’s Countdown’ weekend show and look forward to contributing to 92.3 NOW whenever possible. Even Superman has to sleep.”
Cannon was hospitalized over the weekend after doctors discovered two blood clots in his lungs and an enlarged ventricle on the right side of his heart, and was immediately advised to cut back his workload.
This recent health scare comes only a weeks after the star suffered “mild kidney failure” while vacationing with his family in Colorado over the holidays.
No doubt, this decision wasn’t easy for the hard working entertainer.
“A bitter sweet morning,” he tweeted today. “I have to stop my radio show. Doctors orders. The Doctors found blood clots in my lungs and said if I don’t slow down and stop working so hard then it’s a wrap!”
“I guess I can’t drive at 200 mph for the whole trip, Time to put the car in cruise control.”
But Cannon isn’t stopping everything; he will still stay on as host of America’s Got Talent and will continue with his syndicated radio show, Cannon’s Countdown.
