“Cameron is hard working, charismatic, comfortable on set, on the red carpets and in intimate celebrity one-on-ones,” exec producer Brad Bessey announced. “He’s joined us for special assignments throughout the year, and we are thrilled that he is now a permanent member of the ‘Entertainment Tonight’ team.”

Mathison joins hosts Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier, plus correspondents Brooke Anderson and Nischelle Turner. He will begin his full-time gig later this month.

    Cameron is a very good looking & appealing young man but they need to take another look at his wardrobe. Those ill fitting, poorly tailored suits should be left to Pee-wee Herman.

    Cameron M is not a good host. The woman that is hosting with him on Monday 1/25/16 (Former Dancing With The Stars” host, is equally, well, she is worse. Was so relieved when she left DWTS, now yuck, here she is again. Will stop watching if they both continue to host. You must be digging the bottom of the barrel. Where is Nancy ODell??

    • Who is Cameron ? Could someone please get him a suit that actually fits? not attractive at all. Quite bizarre. Obviously is a male designer squeezing him into his suits..
      Looks like hes squeezing into his little brothers suit….. Not a Good look… And tell him to tone down the botox… His eyes are invisible, like two very very small angry marbles… He just talks over his cohost. Like he’s on speed or too much caffeine. Whatever the problem, he’s too intense and needs to slow down and take a Valium…. It’s not attractive ae very, very annoying and stressful to listen to him… I nave about 35 friends who feel the same. .
      Pease slow him down, please!!!!!

        Nobody of importance…. reads any of our publics comments… So why waste our time?.. but we write case they think what we say may by chance contribute……. It doesn’t though!,,,,
        Cameron has had far too much Botox,,, eyes are as small as others on tv, maybe that’s what he wants… Hes obviously after a ‘career’ on gossip tv.. You have to be skeleton thin or botoxed to within an inch of your life….. All your presentiers all have the prerequisites!,,,, underfed or noticed….
        Very good example to your public. You all should the a damn good look at yourself …. But then again being healthy wont get your shows watched or your magazines read. Must keep it unhealthy and unnatainable.. Huh? That’s the business..
        Pease get Cameron a suit that fits at eat pease…. It’s embarrassing to watch .

  3. Cameron Mathis Is Very Nice!
