Besides being at the helm of Metropolis Nights magazine as the popular publication's publisher, Chaunce has also made his mark as the editor of Steppin’ Out magazine and has written gossip for the New York Daily News and tabloids around the world.

On television Chaunce appeared on E! Entertainment, "Anna Nicole," "Geraldo," "Extra," “My9 News,” "Inside Edition," "E.T.," "Howard Stern," "ABC World News Now" MSNBC’s “Rita Cosby” and "The FOX News Channel" "Chasing New Jersey" and "CNN", as well as on dozens of talk radio programs around the country.

In 1999 Chaunce stepped outside of print journalism to host one of the first web-TV show’s [The Chaunce Hayden Show] on eYada.com's Internet radio network. The outrageous, funny and very controversial show was a tremendous success world wide and attracted millions of daily listeners. Most recently Chaunce hosts iTunes top 10 web-TV program, “The Chaunce Hayden Show” on the GFQNetwork.com

Born and raised on the tough city streets of Manhattan's Inwood section, Chauncé has seen and done it all or has at least tried. The charismatic journalist and publicist has drawn from his true life adventures, which have included a four year stint in the Navy (Fighter Squadron VF-32), followed by a varied list of occupations, some of which were bartender, ditch digger,musician, photographer, artist, football coach and school teacher. Yet, along the way, with hard work and persistence, found time to earn a B.A. in Journalism from William Paterson University.

Recently, Chauncé has had little trouble making a name for himself, notching over 3,500 one on one interviews with some of the world's biggest names, some of which have included - Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, Hugh Hefner, Charlie Sheen, Howard Stern, Tyra Banks, Conan O'Brien, The Kardashian’s, Larry King, Donald Trump, Paris Hilton, Jay Leno, a convicted murderer, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, President Clinton, The Olson Twins, Derek Jeter, Kelly Ripa, and Britney Spears.... (Plus every reality TV star alive) just to name a few.

Wit, charm and a charismatic personality have allowed those around Chauncé to feel like they're with an old friend, thus making his interviews unlike any other. Always compelling, Chaunce's readers are treated to a weekly celebrity feature - sometimes funny, sometimes heartwarming, sometimes controversial - but always consuming. "I don't believe in fluff interviews," says Chauncé, "If the reader doesn't walk away feeling moved or, at the very least entertained, then my time as well as the celebrity's has been wasted, not to mention the reader's."

Once asked how he has been able to obtain so many in-depth interviews, Chauncé replied, "I guess it's just the luck of the Irish."
