MTV is bringing back one of the network’s former flagship programs.
TRL (Total Request Live) returns to the cable channel on October 2 with five rotating hosts.
Among the new faces to take the helm of the revived TRL is Atlanta-raised comedian DC Young Fly.
The 25-year-old internet personality is a regular on MTV’s Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘n Out and a co-host for The 85 South Show podcast.
He also appeared in the 2016 film Almost Christmas with Kimberly Elise, Mo’Nique, Nicole Ari Parker, Gabrielle Union, Danny Glover, and Omar Epps.
Amy Pham, Erik Zachary, Lawrence Jackson, and Tamara Dhia will join DC on TRL.
During its initial run from 1998 – 2008, Total Request Live was the television focal point for all things pop culture related.
The show counted down the most popular music videos of the day, and it was the go-to platform for entertainers to promote their music, movies, or other ventures.
TRL helped eventual music superstars Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, and Eminem become household names.
The teen-centered TV series was also a career launching pad for ex-hosts Carson Daly, La La Vasquez, and Vanessa Lachey.
