MTV Pinoy, the local edition of the world’s first music video channel, is in search of new VJs. These talented young people will be the voices and faces of MTV in the Philippines, and will follow in the footsteps of MTV Pinoy’s first batch of VJs in Sam Pinto, Yassi Pressman, Andre Paras and Josh Padilla.
Male and female aspirants aged 16 years old and above are invited to join the nationwide search. Potential candidates should be articulate, witty, confident, clued in to pop culture, passionate about music, and most of all, must be “Pinoy sa Puso.”
As part of the selection process, participants will perform tasks such as read a prepared spiel in English and Filipino, and conduct interviews. They will also be asked to sing, dance or show off a special talent. The search will end with the announcement of winners on October 3, after which they will begin their careers as MTV Vjs.
