President Obama wants his MTV. He is set to go on the network Friday for Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview With The President. Hosted by MTV News’ Sway Calloway, the sitdown will be broadcast live from the White House at 5 PM ET. Fellow correspondent Andrew Jenks will be stationed at a Washington DC-area college with students who have questions for Obama. The 30-minute special will air on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams and on the network’s website and mobile platform. The interview is part of MTV’s ongoing Power Of 12 election coverage. Questions for the special can be submitted via MTV’s Facebook page and Twitter account.
MTV says it has reached out to Mitt Romney to appear on the network but has not received word back. Obama’s appearance will come two days after he appears on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and just over a week after he was on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.
