List Rules List includes MTV VJs from the 80s, 90s and early 2000s

Here's a list of former and original MTV VJs with photos where possible. A VJ on MTV (sometimes spelled MTV VeeJays) was originally just a DJ, MTV personalities intended to tie the broadcast together by hosting the music videos. But they became popular in their own right, viewed as music journalists, and would soon be given their own shows on the network.

Who are the best VJs in the history of MTV? This MTV VJ's list contains the first MTV VJs, the old ones, and those who followed throughout the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. While the channel isn't really about the music anymore, you can still remember the glory days of MTV with this list of the greatest MTV VJs.
