Teenagers will have to find another place to watch their favorite music videos, writes THE NEW YORK TIMES. DAVE SIRULNICK, executive producer of the MTV video-countdown show "TRL," said that its final episode would run in NOVEMBER.
The show began in 1998 as "Total Request Live" and was hosted by CARSON DALY, who left in 2003.
The show helped the careers of BRITNEY SPEARS, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and many other music acts; it marked its 2,000th episode on MAY 22nd, 2007. The final two-hour special will be shown on a SATURDAY afternoon that is yet to be determined.
