New Hip Hop Show on MTV Slated For Spring Debut
Posted by Dawnavette
In case you assumed like many that MTV had forever replaced music dialogue with Jersey Shore footage, a new show about music is coming this spring. “MTV’s Hip-Hop POV” will combine artist interviews, live performances and the latest news in hip hop culture and commentary. The late-night show hosts include:
Amanda Seales (TV Personality/DJ/Artist/Comic)
Sowmya Krishnamurthy (Journalist/Music Blogger)
Devi Dev (Sirius XM’s “Sway In The Morning” fame)
Charlamagne Tha God (NY Radio Personality/Twitter Celeb)
Bu Thiam (A&R of Def Jam known for work with Lady GaGa, Jay-Z & Kanye West/Akon’s little brother)
“MTV’s Hip-Hop P.O.V. is an exciting, new weekly platform that shines the spotlight on the pulse of what’s relevant to hip-hop fans. With its dominance of the music charts, global impact and cultural influence, we wanted to find a way to harness the passion that MTV viewers have for hip-hop culture and provide its latest and greatest stars and personalities with a brand new stage here at MTV.” – Amy Doyle, EVP Music & Talent Strategy
“MTV’s Hip-Hop POV” is slated to debut on April 11 at midnight following the popular “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Next Best Dance Crew” as MTV’s “night of music.”
Hmmm. Well it’s past-time for a fresh offering in late-night talk, as well as fresh voices in hip-hop. Three women hosts discussing hip-hop culture is incentive enough for me to catch the first few episodes. What do you you think about this announcement?
