So I recently went to the spanking new Waterfront Studios at Resorts World Sentosa for the MTV Sessions featuring Vanness Wu recording. The recording was hosted by VJ Holly and the new VJ Rich. MTV Sessions was also VJ Rich’s first gig as the new MTV VJ.
I was quite surprised that I actually got to meet him so soon after receiving the press release about the new MTV Show hosted by VJ Holly and VJ Rich. If you think that he looks familiar, you’re not imagining things. According to the media release, “VJ Rich is an American-Filipino host and sports enthusiast who was one half of the victorious duo in 2010 Amazing Race Asia”.
He was so smooth and confident on stage that you know he was born to do this.
Extracted from the MTV Asia media release:
MTV’s newly appointed VJ, Rich Herrera, will co-host The MTV Show with VJ Holly reporting weekly news with entertaining commentary, fun trivia plus responding to viewers’ feedbacks and challenges posted on MTV Asia’s Facebook and Twitter sites. Targeted at young and the young-at-heart, The MTV Show is a satirical and irreverent chart countdown that pokes light-hearted fun at today’s pop culture including music videos, movies, celebrity gossips and the latest cultural trends.
Besides music, movies are also a staple in youth entertainment and the latest blockbusters will be previewed in the MTV Show, together with exclusive clips, interviews and behind-the-scene footages. To extend MTV’s interaction with the audience, the VJs invite them to post materials to the show, from covers of favourite songs, movie reviews to opinions on hot topics of the week. They will respond on-air to the messages or challenges posted on MTV Asia’s website (www.mtvasia.com), Facebook and Twitter.
The MTV Show will air on MTV SEA every Saturday starting from 07 January, 12pm (WIB), 1pm (SIN/HK/PH), 2pm (MAL).
