Ok I am going to date myself…I remember when MTV started. Does anyone know what the first video that was shown (without looking it up)? Can you name any of the VJs?

Well I bring up MTV today because my good friend Paul O’Brien at Zvents has shared with me some info about a new joint venture with MTV and Zvents.

Zvents will now be powering Campus Daily Guides with Zvents local search and discovery experience. It will  provide details about tons of important college and recreational events, local promotions, sports, concerts, and performers, specific to each university campus.  MtvU is serving up local search for students like it’s never been done before.  For local merchants and advertisers looking to get more targeted traffic, this definitely provides a new advertising vehicle to reach students.

I am happy to see my school, Florida State University, has a page! Go Noles! I wish we had something like this when I was in school.

Thanks for the update Paul, and if you are interested, please download the official press release here.
