Entertainer and media mogul Nick Cannon will host the 2022 Marconi Radio Awards Dinner on October 19 during NAB Show New York. Record producer and radio host DJ Scratch will provide live music during the ceremony, which celebrates excellence in radio and is returning in person after a two-year hiatus.

Cannon currently serves as executive producer and host of syndicated "Nick Cannon Radio" and hosts "Cannon's Top 30 Weekend Countdown," where he counts down the top hits of each week. He is also executive producer and host of FOX's "The Masked Singer" and is known for his work as creator, host and executive producer of MTV's sketch comedy show "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out," which is credited with introducing audiences to comedians such as Kevin Hart, Pete Davidson, Katt Williams and Mikey Day.

Cannon began his career in television as a teenager on Nickelodeon's sketch-comedy show "All That" and his spin-off, "The Nick Cannon Show." His numerous film appearances include starring roles in "Drumline," "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Roll Bounce." Recently, he wrote, directed, produced and starred in "She Ball" and "Miracles Across 125th Street."

Additionally, he serves as the label head and music business curator of Ncredible Entertainment, where he has helped discover and develop award-winning talent such as H.E.R. and Kehlani. In 2009, he became the youngest television chairman in history when he was named chairman of the TeenNick network.

DJ Scratch co-hosts a weekday radio show with Shelley Wade on Audacy's 94.7 The Block in New York, where Cannon also serves as midday host. DJ Scratch has worked with some of the biggest artists in hip hop during his career, including LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang and EPMD. He has produced 19 albums that have been certified Gold, including seven that have been certified Platinum, and is a three-time Grammy Award nominee.

"NAB is excited to be joined by the talented Nick Cannon and DJ Scratch to honor the on-air voices and local stations that have shined brightest over the past year as we return to an in-person Marconi Radio Awards," said NAB Executive Vice President of Industry Affairs April Carty-Sipp. "We look forward to welcoming the broadcast community to this crowd-pleasing and lively celebration of the best in radio."

Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding air personalities to recognize excellence in radio.
