Okay, the big day has come! I’ve kept you waiting long enough. My big announcement is:
(click the link to check out my page on MTV.com!)
What the hell does that mean, you ask? Well the new MTV TJ is a brand-new face and voice for MTV across social media platforms to expand the two-way dialog between MTV and its global audience!
MTV mined social media networks looking for 18 candidates that are active in social media and have a unique voice and passion for music and pop culture and luckily, I fit the bill!!
The MTV TJ is a modern-day version of the original MTV VJ, but instead of having a one- way dialog in reporting music and pop culture-related news to fans, the TJ is going to be talking to MTV’s hyper-social audience across MTV.com, Twitter, Facebook and blogs, with an occasional TV spot.
Throughout the summer I will be doing several Twitter-based challenges in hopes that I will be selected by MTV to be one of the lucky top 5 that will lead up to the finale August 8th on MTV, where the winner will be announced live on air!
If I win the position, I move to New York City (my dream!!!) and sign a contract for $100,000!!!
That’s basically as much as I can say right now. I will be doing TONS of YouTube videos that will document my thoughts, feelings, and inside scoop on what’s going on as I go through this competition!
My first challenge isn’t until July, so keep checking me out, spreading the news, and telling everyone you know to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, because the more people who interact with me, the better chances I have at making my dreams come true!
