*MTV announced that it will move the start time of its “Video Music Awards” on Sept. 6 in Los Angeles so it won’t conflict with President Obama’s acceptance speech the same night at the Democratic National Convention.
“We will be airing the “VMAs” on Thursday, September 6th from 8-10 p.m. as opposed to our traditional 9-11 p.m. time slot to avoid conflict with the Democratic National Convention proceedings that evening,” a MTV spokesperson told Deadline.
The DNC has not said when exactly the president is scheduled to speak at the convention in Charlotte, N.C. Past nominees traditionally begin around 10 p.m. EST. This is the second broadcast schedule move around the president’s speech; the NFL said in February it was moving its 2012 regular-season opener on NBC from Sept. 6 to Sept. 5 (a Wednesday) to avoid conflicting with Obama.
The Democratic convention runs Sept. 3-6.
