President Obama Meets with Youth for “Conversation”

Published October 6, 2010

If you had an hour to meet with the President of the United States, what would you say? What would you ask? 250 people will have the opportunity to find out.

On October 14, President Obama will sit down with 250 young people from different backgrounds, interests and political beliefs in a one-hour, commercial-free special called "A Conversation with President Obama."

A BET News and MTV News production, the live event will be hosted by BET’s April Woodard, MTV’s Sway Calloway and CMT’s Katie Cook, and will air across all Viacom properties including BET, Centric, MTV, MTVu and TR3S. During the town hall–style meeting, President Obama will address a number of topics and the studio audience will be able to ask questions. Viewers at home will have the opportunity to submit questions for the president via Twitter.

In addition to airing on Viacom stations, the special will also be streamed live on BET.com and CMT.com. Be sure to tune in to this historic broadcast on Thursday, October 14, 4pm ET.

If you are interested in being involved and are 18 years or older, we would love to meet you. Please email townhallaudience@mtvnmix.com and put "Town Hall" in the subject line along with the following information:
