In the past, Cannon has hosted and produced four seasons of the popular improve MTV comedy show 'Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out.' The show's success prompted NBC to ink a deal with the producer for development of forthcoming projects.

"I'm thrilled to be working with NBC," Cannon said, noting that the network understands his "vision as not only an entertainer but as a creative show producer. I look forward to working with the network and their executive team on 'America's Got Talent' and other shows to come."

Cannon follows behind the likes of Regis Philbin and Springer as the third host of 'America's Got Talent.'

The fourth season of 'America's Got Talent' is set to premiere this summer.
