'I Want My MTV!'

Long before Snooki or The Situation rose to fame, MTV's biggest stars were music videos (remember those?) and the "VJs" who introduced them. To celebrate the channel's 30th anniversary — it launched on August 1, 1981 — takes a nostalgic look back at some of MTV's most memorable on-air personalities. Pictured here is Carson Daly who worked for MTC from 1998-2002. Though he's been the host of NBC's "Last Call With Carson Daly" since 2002, Daly — shown here with Britney Spears in 2000 — was an MTV heartthrob (dating the likes of Tara Reid and Jennifer Love Hewitt) and the face of MTV's hugely popular "Total Request Live" (TRL) for four years.
