  • NEW YORK (AP) — MTV says it will air a live 30-minute interview with President Barack Obama across its various networks and platforms on Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern time and on tape delay at 5 p.m. Pacific time.

    Viewers are being invited to submit questions for the president on MTV's Facebook page. MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway will interview Obama at the White House, while Andrew Jenks will be reporting from a Washington-area college campus.

    MTV hopes many questions will focus on issues important to young voters, such as jobs and the cost of college.

    The interview will air on five different networks, MTV.com and its mobile platform.

    Spokeswoman Janice Gatti says the network has reached out to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a similar special, but hasn't gotten a response.
