The Origin of The CUT
The CUT (The Chambers Urban TV Network) is an urban news and entertainment syndicate providing coverage from red carpet events in Hollywood, CA and beyond. The CUT also offers human interest features and stories pertaining to health, wealth, fitness, fashion, food, music, concerts, plays, religious events and more. The subscribers will get packaged video reports to share online with their customers.
The CUT was founded by Eric J. Chambers, a 32-year TV veteran, who formerly hosted The Jazzspel TV show nationally on The Word Network. “Over the past 20 years, I have become very connected to Hollywood, and with the explosion of online sites, this is a perfect time to share the stories of urban Hollywood with the rest of the world and help media outlets enhance their online visitor’s experiences,” says Chambers from his office in Hollywood. “In essence, it will give these outlets their own qualified Hollywood correspondent.”
Most recently, he covered the Hollywood premiere of “42,” the movie about the life of Jackie Robinson. He has also covered the BET Celebration of Gospel, ESPN ESPY Awards, Gospel Goes To Hollywood, The NAACP Image Awards, Halle Berry’s All-Star Gala and the Academy Awards.
Chambers, a New Orleans native and former US Navy vet, has also worked for CBS, NBC, ABC, Big Brother, The Amazing Race, DirecTV, Reelz Channel and The NFL Network.
He has interviewed some of America’s top talent including Beyoncé, Arsenio Hall, Stevie Wonder, Magic Johnson, Angela Bassett, Mark Wahlberg, Evander Holyfield, Gladys Knight, Yolanda Adams, Harrison Ford and Morgan Freeman.
