(CBS) Nick Cannon has decided to end his daily radio morning show duties in New York after his recent health scare.

"The Doctors found blood clots in my lungs and said if I don't slow down and stop working so hard then it's a wrap!," Cannon, 31, tweeted Friday morning.

According to a statement on the 92.3 NOW FM website, doctors ordered Cannon to cut back on some of his professional commitments so that his body could rest.

In January, Cannon was hospitalized after suffering from what his wife, Mariah Carey, described as "mild kidney failure."Since then, he's been going to the doctor regularly for check-ups.

Cannon, whose a father to nine-month-old twins with Carey, said he'll continue to host his syndicated weekend show, "Cannon's Countdown." He hopes to contribute to the radio station whenever he can.
