Nick Cannon Announces He's Taking Some Time Away From His Radio Show Following Anti-Semitic Controversy

Nick Cannon announced that he’ll be taking “some time away” from his Los-Angeles based radio show, Nick Cannon Mornings, on Power 106.

The break comes amid backlash from anti-Semitic comments he made during an episode of his Cannon’s Class podcast last month.

“Morning radio family. I have decided to take some time away from my radio show so I can commit myself to deeper, more thorough reflection and education,” tweeted Cannon, who’s hosted the show since June 2019. “I continue to express my gratitude to the Rabbis, community leaders and institutions who have reached out to me to help enlighten me.”

“Their input and friendship will help me as I further commit myself to more profound learning and towards strengthening the bond between the Black and Jewish cultures every day going forward,” he added.

Skyview Networks, the syndicator for the national version of the show, said in a statement to ET that “Nick Cannon has begun a period of self-reflection to address the pain he caused.”

“While we recognize his apology, this time is needed to establish an action plan towards real change and advocacy,” the statement continued. “During this period, production of the Nick Cannon Radio show will pause. Skyview Networks values all communities and faiths and we expect all programs and personalities we syndicate to adhere to these principles.”

Maybe some time away will do Nick some good.
