Nick “Mr. Get-A-Check” Cannon has joined Radio Shack as the Chief Creative Officer.  Cannon will 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, from curating the music selection to performances and events. He will also help the company continue to grow its educational and S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering and math) initiatives nationwide.

Nick Radio ShackIn a released statement Cannon says “RadioShack is a brand that matters. As a kid, spending time in my neighborhood RadioShack was invaluable.  The maker mentality and educational approach taught me a lot and encouraged me to explore my own creativity. In return I wanted to give back by fostering creative pursuits in others, and helping kids move to the next level. I’ve been able to do that with my company, NCredible, and I’m proud to do even more as Chief Creative Officer for RadioShack.”

Cannon will focus on developing new products to inspire and educate the next generation. Details will be announced (wait for it…) in the near future.

Time and not much of it, will clearly tell if Cannon can save this electronic Titanic! Man down…this is a code ten situation!
