The president will host youth town hall on MTV.

President Barack Obama is reaching out to young voters through MTV. The president will take part in a youth town-hall special on Oct. 14 entitled, "A Conversation With President Obama." The interactive one-hour event will air live and commercial-free on MTV, MTVu, BET, Centric, TR3s and CMT at 4 p.m. (ET) and stream live on MTV.com, BET.com and CMT.com. The president will take the stage before an audience of approximately 250 young people representing a broad cross-section of backgrounds, interests and political viewpoints. The show, a production of MTV News and BET News, will be hosted by MTV's Sway Calloway, BET's April Woodard and CMT's Katie Cook. During the event, Obama will answer questions on a wide range of topics from the studio audience as well as from viewers who submit questions via Twitter. Hopefully people will "watch and learn."
