President Barack Obama addresses young voter concerns in ASK OBAMA LIVE: An MTV Interview with the President, which airs live Friday at 5 PM Eastern (tape delayed on the West Coast) on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, and MTV.com. The half-hour special has MTV News correspondents Sway Calloway, who will sit down with the President in the White House, and Andrew Jenks, who will be on-the-ground at a college campus in Washington D.C. with a group of young voters. MTV.com will also host a live-stream discussion with Jenks before and after the special.
MTV audiences can submit questions for the President on MTV’s Facebook page. MTV’s ASK OBAMA LIVE: An MTV Interview with the President marks the first time in this campaign that either President Obama or Governor Romney focused solely on young voters’ top concerns: jobs, the cost of college, the rising student loan debt, social issues like LGBTQ rights, and immigration – on a nationally televised program. ·
MTV invited Governor Romney to participate in a live, 30 minute special as well and hopes to sit down with him on camera before Election Day.
