Nick Cannon 'Having Fun' Hosting Radio And Hanging With Jay-Z

'I'm trying to bring something new, something fresh,' he says of his new morning DJ gig.

He still has time to hang with Mariah, right? What else are we to make of [artist id="1233784"]Nick Cannon[/artist]'s crazily busy professional life, from his hosting gig on "America's Got Talent" to leading both his own production company and the TeenNick cable network. The chance to pencil in some one-on-one time with Mariah Carey might have gotten even tougher now that Cannon has yet another job: morning DJ at 92.3 Now in New York.

"I'm all about having fun and bringing energy in the morning," Cannon told MTV News. "So to me, I'm trying to bring something new, something fresh -- do it my way."

His way includes interviews with the likes of Kobe Bryant, Jay-Z and Jason Derülo, spinning cuts from today's top artists and having his wife call into the station with prank calls.

So what about those attempts for QT with Carey? Cannon admitted their schedules are hectic but they're still [article id="1630644"]moving toward building a family[/article] one day in the future. "We absolutely plan to have a family," he said. "But we gotta prioritize, because that's a major, major priority. That's like the only priority in life, when you think about it, is starting and raising a family. We wanna make sure everything is out of the way and that we don't have any distractions."

Distractions such as his radio-show guests taking off when Cannon's not looking. "Jay-Z left me," Cannon laughed. "He said we were going to go to lunch and all of that. I thought we were friends, sharing old stories together, and then he just rolled on me. I was like, 'I bet you if I run down the street, chasing after Jay-Z's limo, it'd be really hilarious.' "
