Then: Before she became one of MTV’s original VJs, Quinn had worked on New York University’s radio station and as an actress in commercials. When she heard the new music-centered channel was seeking talent, she raced to audition, where she blew MTV’s execs away.

Now: Quinn worked for MTV from 1981-1991, and was voted MTV’s Best-Ever VJ by the readers of ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine. In 1998, she recounted her experiences as part of the TV documentary ‘I Was an MTV VJ,’ but since then has moved away from television and into SiriusXM radio, hosting the radio show ‘Martha Quinn Presents.’ Keep up with Quinn on her Facebook page.
