Carla Hall to Emcee Cable Hall of Fame Ceremony

The Cable Center said Carla Hall, co-host of syndicated lifestyle series The Chew, will emcee the 21st annual Cable Hall of Fame ceremony on Wednesday, April 4, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City.

In addition to The Chew, where she is seated alongside restaurateur and Iron Chef America star Michael Symon, and entertaining expert Clinton Kelly, Hall is best known as a competitor on Bravo’s Top Chef and Top Chef: All Stars, where she won over audiences with her fun catch phrase, “Hootie Hoo!” and her philosophy to always cook with love. Hall’s approach to cooking blends her classic French training and Southern upbringing for a twist on traditional favorites.
