President Barack Obama will take the campaign to MTV this Friday, participating in a live Q&A session with college students on MTV. Via The Washinton Post:
Sway Calloway will host “Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview With The President,” live at 5 p.m. ET from the White House; MTV’s Andrew Jenks will be posted at a Washington college with students who have questions. West Coast viewers will see a tape-delayed telecast of the special, which also will be run on MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams, and MTV’s network’s website and mobile platform.
Obama’s also in talks, as is GOP hopeful Mitt Romney, about being interviewed, separately, on the eve of Election Day, during halftime of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”
In the interest of bipartisanship, MTV has offered Republican challenger Mitt Romney a similar opportunity, but so far he hasn’t taken them up on the offer.
