MTV recently slammed rumors that TRL was canceled, and instead announced that it’s just expanding by adding two new programs: one in the morning and one at night. On Thursday (April 5), the network disclosed more details about the shows.
Total Request AM, which is set to premiere on April 23 at 8 a.m. ET/PT, will be hosted by MTV News veteran Sway Calloway and feature musical performances, celebrity interviews and a music video countdown during its one-hour slot. The afternoon block of the original TRL will return on the same day at 3 p.m.
Total Request LateNight launched back in February, only airing twice a week on Mondays and Tuesdays. This summer, the show will expand to three nights and will air four nights of the week by the end of the year.
