Nick Cannon: Mogul In The Making And Full-Time Student | Forbes

Published

on

On an overcast November morning in Washington, D.C., Nick Cannon was busy, as one would expect of the multihyphenate who jockeys every morning on the radio, hosts two hit competition series and a podcast, is producing and directing two movies, and tours with a stand-up show. But he wasn’t thinking about his next interview or camera angles. Instead, as his red eye from Los Angeles landed, finals were on his mind, specifically the one he had at 5 p.m. for a public health and society class at Howard University, where he enrolled as a full-time student in 2016.

He’s set to get his degree this May and hopes to follow it up with a masters in psychology, but—as seems to be the trend with the ever-juggling Cannon—graduating won’t be his only accomplishment in 2020. In the fall, his syndicated talk show will debut on Fox broadcast networks, where he already hosts The Masked Singer. Like many other top-paid TV hosts, Cannon has moved on from only being the face of a series—he previously hosted America’s Got Talent and a handful of Nickelodeon shows—to taking a bigger role behind the scenes. He’s signed on to produce both his talk show and the Masked Singer through his Ncredible Productions, meaning he’ll not only collect a salary, but also get a cut of the profits. Projects produced by Ncredible generated over $100 million in revenue last year—he also produces MTV’s Wild ‘N Out—and that’s expected to double this year.

Rivian: Tesla’s Newest Rival | Forbes

Published

on

By

With the emergence of Rivian, the electric vehicle market is no longer a one-horseless-carriage race. Indeed, the 2020s are gearing up to be the decade of the EV. According to research at Oppenheimer, EVs and plug-in electric hybrids accounted for a mere 2.2 percent of all U.S. vehicles sold in the last quarter of 2019. And only a third of those were purely electric. But that is changing rapidly. While only 5.1 million electric cars were sold worldwide in 2018, that figure is expected to surge throughout the decade—21 million units are projected to be sold in 2020, 98 million in 2025 and 253 million in 2030.

Building a new EV, however, requires investing in cutting-edge research into components like battery packs and powertrains. The only company that has been remotely successful is, of course, Tesla—and even it’s had a rough go of it. The question is: Even with $3 billion, does Rivian have enough to realize Scaringe’s electric dreams? If the mighty Tesla has faced so many detours and potholes, what makes Scaringe think that Rivian, which hasn’t made a single car, can have a smooth ride? He doesn’t. “Things will go wrong,” admits the young CEO. And Scaringe, who comes across like a mild-mannered Clark Kent type compared to Musk’s manic Tony Stark, is confident he can overcome any perils or roadblocks. After all, Rivian is built for treacherous terrain.
