Nick Cannon departs NYC radio show

February 18th, 2012 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - Nick Cannon has stepped down from his New York City radio show.

Cannon said in a statement on the 92.3 NOW website that Friday was his last day hosting the 2-year-old show, called "Rollin'."

He said doctors had ordered him to cut back on his professional commitments and get more rest. He tweeted Friday that doctors had found blood clots in his lungs.

The 31-year-old entertainer was hospitalized last month after suffering from what his wife, Mariah Carey, called "mild kidney failure."

The couple became parents of twins, a son Moroccan and a daughter Monroe, last year.

Cannon said he'll continue to host his syndicated weekend show, "Cannon's Countdown." He added that he will "look forward to contributing to 92.3 NOW whenever possible."
