Long-running MTV on-air personality Carson Daly has reupped his contract with the music network for another two years, continuing to pull double duty between the cable net and his year-old latenight program on broadcast TV.
Daly, whose talkshow “Last Call With Carson Daly” follows “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” on the NBC weeknight sked, will continue to host episodes of MTV’s popular call-in show “Total Request Live,” which he rode to stardom in the late 1990s, and act as the show’s exec producer.
He’ll also make regular appearances and take up hosting duties on a number of MTV regular programs, weekend shows and special events, including its perennial “Spring Break” extravaganzas and “Spankin’ New Music Week.”
In addition Daly will work on new ventures: He is hosting “Carson Daly’s Most Requested,” a syndicated radio program for Clear Channel’s Premiere Radio, and he is ramping up a record label called 456 Entertainment with partner Jon Rifkind.
Daly, repped by music-law firm Grubman, Indursky & Schindler, got his start on West Coast radio, working as a jock on Live 105 in San Francisco, KOME-FM San Jose and Los Angeles rock station KROQ.
