His first TV appearance was in 1977, when he co-presented the show Non siamo gazzose with Erik Colombardo, aired by Grp, a local TV channel broadcast in Piedmont only.[1] In 1982, he started working in RAI, appearing in some shows for kids.[3] Starting from 1988, he was part of the cast of the TV show Va Pensiero, broadcast by Rai 3. This experience allowed him to receive a Telegatto for Revelation of the Year.[3]

In 1997, Chiambretti was chosen as one of the presenters of the 47th Sanremo Music Festival, along with Mike Bongiorno and Valeria Marini.[4] During the following year, he presented the DopoFestival, a show aired immediately after each night of the Sanremo Music Festival, featuring comments about the televised song contest.[5] In 2002, he created a new TV show, Chiambretti c'è, together with Gianni Boncompagni.[1] After being excluded from RAI, Chiambretti, assiste from the showgirl Sylvie Lubamba, presented the show Markette – tutto fa brodo in tv on the television channel La7.[1] After returning at the DopoFestival in 2007, he presented the Sanremo Music Festival once again in 2008, together with Pippo Baudo.[6][7]
