Nick Cannon lands Morning Radio Gig in New York

A Shake My Head Moment... (SMH) But it's really another WTFhhhck is going on in the radio industry

CBS Radio CHR WXRK-FM (92.3 Now)/New York taps actor, comedian and musician Nick Cannon as the station's morning drive host, weekdays from 6-10am beginning January 19. Cannon's show will be heard on-air, online and through mobile devices such as the iPhone. The San Diego native is well-known for his success as the host of NBC's "America's Got Talent."

Who in their right mind STILL hires an actor to do morning radio? Didn't Whoppi Goldberg teach you radio execs a lesson. There's no way Nick Cannon is going to... -LIVE in the studio. NO WAY! Picture this... Nick leaving Mariah's side every morning between 3:30 and 4 a.m, to take that ride over to the radio station on a cold January morning in New York...yeah right... how long will it be before the PD is encouraging him to have his wife call into the show... What's he gonna do when Mariah says... "Baby, I want you to call in sick this morning?" WHAT would you do?

Another WTF SMH moment: I actually heard a professional on-air host on Power 99 say "vass-a-seen " when reporting on the recall of the H1N1 flu vaccines. That would be "VACK-seen", bruh. His co-host corrected him, but how can you crack the mic and not know how that word is pronounced???
