Who is This Guy? Meet Exposure Magazine Senior Editor Cedric Nettles



Senior Editor Cedric Nettles

We grow you where you are planted.


The biggest honor was given to me when I was offered the position of Senior Editor of Exposure Magazine alongside serving as Associate Producer of All Men Rock.  My mission is to create harmonious relationships with new and seasoned talent. We also want to bless the people we cover in Exposure Magazine.The publication started 4 years ago for me as Entertainment Editor where I did my first set of celebrity interviews. We are very blessed to have the contributing writers and editors  on our team who are great people as well as pros.



My platform Speak Live Nation (sponsored by Exposure Magazine) thrusted me in the world of celebrity interviews and entertainment professionals. I had a bi weekly radio show. I absolutely loved meeting my favorite acts like Hi-Five. Other notable interviews were Diamond Strawberry , King Of Paper Chasin’s Jason Lanzar Rivera, Syleena Johnson, Desi Sanchez and my big sis and mentor Maria Howell.


As in my previous articles I spoke of my start as a Communication Soldier/Paratrooper for a military intelligence unit.  My dream was to become a sportscaster  and someway,somehow transition to film making.  It is amazing how the present circumstances are allowing me to do print, television,film,radio and novels with the advancements of today’s technology. My mind is blown.


My early start in media came shortly after leaving Fort Drum NY. I did an internship at my home town television station in Florence SC. (WPDE TV 15) ABC and (WWMB TV21) UPN (United Paramount Network)I was later  hired in master control and helped with programming, newscasts and weather cut-ins. Yes I was running two television stations at the same time with my other teammates who were a blast to work with. I learn the pressure of live television, and how to function in it.


I went old school and I saw this opening hundreds of times. These were some amazing pros, and seeing the late great Dave Gilbert here brought back a lot of memories. Thanks to all of you that let me pick your brain…Especially Terry Gurn in sports. I learned so much from  all of you. Tiffany you were always so nice. Oh congrats to Allyson, she just retired. (:



I was pretty fortunate to work in television 4 years before going to school for broadcast journalism at the University of South Carolina. I was a sponge , I absorbed everything. I am thankful for those days to be able to pay some dues because no one is going to hand you anything. That time allowed me to get an advantage I did not expect to get.

I worked pretty much behind the scenes on independent film projects as I am developing my own even as we speak.  Youngsters, you just never know, don’t make the mistake as I did thinking you had to hit a grand slam with one big project…Just swing to get on base. Don’t worry about striking out, it is part of the process.

Here is my documentary on my high school  which was the first predominantly black school to be accredited by the South Carolina  Department of Education. I did this as a school project and this  helped get me in the doors with other film makers locally. Film is the next stop as things are coming together after a lot of grinding.


Oh by the way… I was signed by Charlotte based Talent-Link where I did commercial acting(Bojangles). I also did promotional modeling for John Robert Powers.  Very brief stint in modeling, but was fun. (:



“Err…We believe we should actually hand you the ladder.”

So where is the next road is leading?

 Chinese Theater-Hollywood CA

Your journey is yours remember that. Just find your place. Never compare.


“Err…We believe we should actually hand you the ladder.”Our team believes in being door openers, not just gate keepers.” As Senior Editor the goal is to ensure a cutting edge and amiable culture of professionals.


Mentorship, apprenticeship, service, should be part of your vocabulary if you are just starting out new folks. You see, the experience always leads to more chances to develop your skill set not to mention earn more money. Even at this stage of my life, the importance of taking your time to learn your craft, to learn proper protocol, and to learn how to monetize relationships is key to my next level. In film, there are millions of dollars at stake…Literally….It is a very unforgiving business and you need a base to function from. We have tons of professionals here at Exposure that can help. Trust me, I KNOW HOW IT IS TRYING TO GET EXPOSED.


We grow you where you are planted, because everyone’s journey is unique.


Exposure Magazine is here to help get you some insight. To get the knowledge from others who care about you and your success. As people have done for me like my wonderful publicist and CEO of Exposure Magazine.We open doors.We grow you where you are planted. We don’t play the ‘I want to help you , but you are a second class citizen that still don’t deserve it when you start winning.’ You grind, we grind together, we all eat, plain and simple.


So hopefully this gives you some insight on my experience and credentials as Writer/Producer/Editor.

The grind never stops, and we at Exposure Magazine hope you never will.

Author Matt Patterson Releases his New Book "We Got This!"


This week my Facebook friend Matt Patterson will be releasing his new book – WE’VE GOT THIS! – as a #FREE #Kindle download on WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY – MARCH 28 & 29.

We expect people to come to work and be “normal.” Well, what if their circumstances aren’t “normal”?





This book IS NOT LONG. If organizations and leaders need a 250-page book on how to treat people who are battling a personal crisis – then something needs to change. This is a how-to guide that leaders can keep handy in a desk drawer or on the corner of their desk for when that time comes when a team member lightly taps on your door or sends you an email/text and asks – “Can we talk?”

I sincerely hope that you will find some value in this effort. It wasn’t easy.

I appreciate each of you and for your amazing support. And besides – IT’S FREE!

True Story of Hope and Perseverance, Field of Hearts by Marian Klooster



True Story of Hope and Perseverance, Field of Hearts by Marian Klooster


How many times have we seen people with chronic medical conditions persevere as an example to us all?

Having a chronic medical condition will many times lead to depression, anxiety and/or uncertainty about the future.

The story of Marian Klooster is one of hope, strength, perseverance, and success despite her chronic medical condition. Marian is from Willemstad, sunny island Curacao. In 2011, she lost her son a week after his birth due to a pregnancy complication.

She was devastated and depressed, but she didn’t give up! Despite the several challenges she had to overcome in her life, Marian was able to rise above it and succeed. She is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to her book, Field of Hearts. She started writing her book to cope with her emotions, and it didn’t take long to finish and get ready for publishing!

Marian received guidance and support from her book coach, Kenny Jones. Kenny is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to his book, The Comeback Kid.

Marion’s book debuted this year in the Top Best-Selling Books in 4 Different Countries in its category. Most of the Sales were from Curaçao and the Netherlands. She donates 10% from

each sale to Curacao Heart Foundation to support their fight against heart diseases through research, prevention, and care.

Lives were touched by her Book – here I include some Feedbacks she received from her Readers.

“101% worth the time invested to read! This is a story that touches the heart in every aspect of the Word! It takes you back and forth as how life of this young lady has been up until now. Simple said, this is a TRUE Story worth the read and learn from. This Young Lady, Marian, shows that with self-confidence, determination and eagerness to succeed regardless of all the reasons to give up, she never quit! Keep Moving Forward! Thanks for sharing Your Life with us, the readers, not just another Story!” by David C.E.J. Jansen

“Field of Hearts is an incredibly emotional experience. Mari bares her soul into each page of the book. Once I started reading the book, I could not put it down. Such a brave and bold move to share her story. Learning about becoming an Entrepreneur is one thing, but watching Mari’s Journey in this book is a new level! I’m speechless.” By Kenny Jones, Author of the Amazon Bestselling Book Comeback Kid

‘Overcoming’ Torrential Waters by Cedric Nettles



Torrential Raine is on the way!

Torrential Waters was my hard hitting, emotional journey of a ‘gifted’ young man coping with new found fame and a very low opinion of himself. I shared my childhood of having a poor self image and being bullied. I also shared the power of God’s hands on you, and His ability to show favor on your life, even when you don’t think you are ready. I laugh , because

at times I feel I am living Torrential Waters in some respects now. You will relate as well after you finish reading.


I don’t pull punches in Torrential  Waters, because life does not. This piece is by Chrystan Johnson and expresses  what she felt after reading Torrential Waters. We all have to know we have a purpose to our pain. We have an assignment, something we have to do before we take that last breath. That one thing you think that does not matter serves a higher purpose. I want to encourage everyone to go as hard as you can in this life, to grow, to serve, to be all you are called to be.


I was honored to read this review, this sums it up

Excellent read! Bought the book, but due to some medical/eye problems, could not read it for a few months. Finally got that fixed (!) and finished Nettles’ “Torrential Waters” within a day and a half! One of those books you just don’t want to end! Wonderful insight into faith, family, relationships, forgiveness of others as well as one’s self, hope for the future and the ever-enduring spirit of the human soul. I highly recommend for readers of any age. I hope Mr. Nettles has more (perhaps a series?!), but if not a series about this character, than at least more books planned for the future. The author’s own story itself is book-worthy; I personally would love to see him write an autobiography on how much he’s overcome in his own life. Meanwhile – buy the book! You won’t be disappointed.-Jan Harvin
