Obama to Appear on MTV for Q&A

President Obama will participate in a live half-hour Q&A with MTV on Friday, once again drawing on pop culture to reach undecideds and to boost turnout among young voters.

An MTV spokeswoman said that they have also offered a half-hour to the Romney campaign. Nothing has been announced.

Obama’s appearance will be called “Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview with the President.” MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway will sit down with Obama at the White House, and Andrew Jenks will be with a group of younger voters at a college campus in the D.C. area. Viewers also will be able to submit questions online.

On Wednesday, Obama will be in Los Angeles for an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” First Lady Michelle Obama will be in Los Angeles on Thursday for a fundraiser at the home of Will Smith, and will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

In recent weeks Romney has avoided daytime and latenight talk shows, although Ann Romney appeared on “The Tonight Show” last month and “The View” last week. But he canceled plans to appear on “The View,” citing scheduling reasons, and declined to participate in Nickelodeon’s “Choose or Lose” special.
