Nick Cannon Steps Down From His Radio Show

After a string of highly publicized health concerns, Nick Cannon is stepping down from his 92.3 NOW Rollin' morning show.

"Under doctor's orders, I have been asked to put my health 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 multi-tasking schedule," Cannon said in a statement Friday. "Even Superman has to sleep."

The America's Got Talent host, and father of nine-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with wife Mariah Carey, just announced Wednesday that he was hospitalized over the weekend because of two blood clots found in his lungs as well as an enlarged ventricle in his heart. Over the holidays, he was hospitalized due to kidney failure.

Speaking on his NYC morning show recently, Cannon credited his extensive traveling and flying as being the possible culprit of the blood clots.

"That, on top of my previous condition, actually made me more prone to this," he said. "If it isn't one thing, it's another."
