Nick Cannon has announced that he is giving up hosting duties of Rollin' with Nick Cannon, his radio show on Manhattan's 92.3 NOW, after doctors discovered blood clots in his lungs. Cannon will continue to host a syndicated radio show, Cannon's Countdown, and host NBC's America's Got Talent.

"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.

Cannon has been dealing with a number of medical issues recently. He was hospitalized last month for mild kidney failure while on vacation with his wife Mariah Carey, and was hospitalized again last weekend for an issue with his lungs.
