MTV to Stop Broadcasting Music Videos

In an interview with the New York Times, CEO Roger Dorkin said MTV viewers had agreed with a proposal to stop broadcasting music videos from March 2016.

The redesigned MTV, will still feature a music video of the Month but it will be presented as a single still photograph aired with no audio and will only be on screen for thirty five seconds.

Dorkin told the NYT: “You’re now one click away from every song and music video imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”
