‘TRL’ To Return To MTV Starting In October
MTV is bringing back classic show TRL, or Total Request Live this October.
TRL RETURNS TO MTV
From 1998 to 2008, TRL served as MTV’s daily show with host Carson Daly. MTV just announced that the show will make a comeback on Oct. 2. “MTV at its best – whether it’s news, whether it’s a show, whether it’s a docu-series about amplifying young people’s voices,” explained MTV president Chris McCarthy.
The series will air from a Times Square studio, just like it used to, except this time around the set will be almost 200% larger. The updated “8,700 square-foot multi-functional studio allows for bigger audiences, expansive sets and simultaneous productions including new digital extensions of TRL,” MTV described.
Daly will not be returning as host, but the show will bring on new revolving co-hosts during the season. Some examples of upcoming hosts include Amy Pham, John Whitfield aka D.C. Young Fly, Erik Zachary, Lawrence K. Jackson, and Tamara Dhia. The eclectic group boasts established actors and actresses, DJs, rappers, hosts, writers, and producers.
