Prior to being named to his current role in 2008, Friedman was the General Manager of mtvU, MTV’s channel dedicated to college students, which he started in 2004. In his role, Friedman launched mtvU’s campaign to fight the genocide in Darfur, Darfur Is Dying, which was honored with two Emmy awards, including the 2006 Governor’s Award.« Back to Our Team
