VP of MTV News Benjamin Wagner Just Performed In My Office

August 7, 2009 — 11

Turns out, when he’s not running MTV News, Benjamin Wagner writes and performs music. In fact, he’s already got a few indie albums out.

Benjamin took a break from breaking news and whatnot, and he came over for a visit just now. My meeting was ending, so Ben picked up a guitar and jammed for us. Check out Ben…

Here’s an original…

Notice the sky in his guitar. We stole the guitar from Robin Katz, in our music department, who was working from home today.

    I think Benjamin totally rocks too both with and without a guitar… in addition to being a fine musician, he's just a really good person right down to his core.
