In 2016, he served as host of the BET Honors special, and co-hosted ABC TV’s summer music event series “Greatest Hits,” produced by Ken Ehrlich. He can now be seen in a cameo role in Adam Sandler’s ’90s set Netflix comedy film “Sandy Wexler,” which debuted April 14.

He can also be heard Monday mornings as co-host of the popular nationally syndicated radio program “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.”
