RadioShack names Nick Cannon as Chief Creative Officer
NICK CANNON seems to have a lot of jobs right now, but he’s added another one: He was just hired by RadioShack. Which is a little surprising because it’s 2015 and RadioShack is still trying to be a thing?

It’s a REAL job too . . . he won’t be sitting behind a counter selling you hearing aid batteries and minutes for your TracFone.
His title is Chief Creative Officer, and a press release says he’ll, quote, “play an active role in the development of RadioShack-exclusive products as well as helping to further transform the retailer into the must-visit electronics destination.”
As part of the new gig, he’ll get an office at the RadioShack headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Nick says he’s been a fan of RadioShack since he was eight years old, when they helped him fix some stereo equipment that he’d broken.
RadioShack is now under new ownership after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.
