92.3 NOW’s Nick Cannon Delivered nearly 2,000 Toys to New York Children

Topic: Youth-Focused Initiatives

Nick Cannon, host of the Rollin’ with Nick Cannon Morning Show on Infinity Broadcasting Group’s WXRK-FM New York, 92.3 NOW, and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” brought truckloads of toys to the New York Hospital Queens Mets Care Room. Cannon collected the toys during his attempt to secure the Guinness World Record for the most hugs in one hour. Standing outside Citi Field, Cannon embraced 1,679 fans and missed the record by only 52 hugs. Paper Jamz from WowWee donated one toy for each hug Cannon secured.
“Regardless of the failed attempt, I am thrilled to do my part to put smiles on the faces of children who need it most,” said Cannon. “Thanks to everyone for coming out and to Paperjamz for donating thousands of dollars in toys. This was a great event and I look forward to making another world record try in the future.”
