U.K. Prime Minister and G8 Summit chair Tony Blair is going global with MTV Networks.
Blair will take part in a forum on the key themes of the G8 agenda, which MTVN will air in 24 countries, including nine African nations.
All Eyes on Tony Blair will also feature Bob Geldof, the leading force behind Saturday’s Live8 concerts.
“MTV has a long history of giving audiences a direct dialog with some of the world’s most influential leaders,” MTVN vice chairman Bill Roedy said in a prepared statement. “Young people in particular have the power to help change the world, and it’s critical that they have the opportunity to express their opinions on important issues that affect their future.”
