"Having grown up at Nickelodeon, we are confident that his groundbreaking vision and ideas will continue to make TeenNick one of the most popular destinations for teens and tweens, on-air and online."

TeenNick posted its highest-rated and most-watched quarter ever with total viewers and teens 12-17 in 2Q10. Most recently, the original two-hour Degrassi TV movie, "The Heat is On" (Monday, July 19, 9 p.m. ET) set a new record as the highest-rated and most-watched telecast in the network's history with 1.2 million total viewers.

Cannon's on-air initiatives for the network this year include The Nightlife, hosted and executive produced by Cannon, showcasing the latest trends in fashion, music, dance and entertainment.
