The Expansion of MTV and Its Affect on Culture
On March 27, I will be discussing how the Music Television Channel (MTV) has influenced the television formats we see today and has helped to influence, solidify and spread pop culture, both in America and in many other countries. I will discuss MTV's beginnings and history, how its format changed from only music videos to now music videos, television shows (especially reality television), and other forms of entertainment. I will also talk about MTV's expansion outside of the United States to other countries and cultures, especially Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and will discuss its influence in those countries.
