The End of TRL

I haven't watched MTV in years. In fact, I stopped watching MTV in high school when TRL became the only program that aired music videos. When MTV announced the end of the program came the thought that maybe they'd go back to airing videos. Of course, that's highly improbable.

With youtube enabling artists of all sorts to have a media outlet, MTV has lost its need to air videos. Moreover, genre specific blogs clump videos together and make mini MTVs for enthusiasts.

So, what's next for MTV? More reality shows like The Hills? Either way, I won't be watching.

Do they still do MTV News updates? I would hate for Sway to be out of a job. That dude's the man.
