Changing of the guard at MTV. Martha Quinn, perhaps MTV's best-known veejay over the past five years, is leaving the video channel Dec. 31, an MTV spokeswoman has confirmed. According to MTV sources, Quinn's contract is up at the end of the year and won't be renewed.
"There's no animosity and we've had a great association," the spokeswoman added. "But Martha's been here for a long time and we're looking to evolve and bring in some new faces."
Quinn is the third veejay to leave the channel over the past year, following J.J. Jackson and Nina Blackwood. MTV recently hired new veejay Carolyne Heldman.
