Nick Cannon's New Gig: Network CEO!

Nick Cannon has been named the new chairman of TeenNick (formerly known as The N) -- and all his celebs friends are wishing him the best! Taylor Swift, Tony Hawk and Ellen DeGeneres are a few of Nick's pals sending love and so is wifey Mariah Carey!

Cannon tells Essence.com he's grateful for the opportunity. The 28-year-old got his start on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show "All That." " I consider [the network] family because they gave me my first opportunity when I was 17," Cannon dished.

The funnyman also talks to Essence.com about preparing for fatherhood and staying connected to younger generations.
