Early in her on-air career, MuchMusic VJ Erica Ehm got one of the toughest interview assignments of the time, when she met with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders. Chrissie dished out cynicism and expressed strong opinions on a variety of subjects, all with her customary candour.
In 1984, Christopher Ward helped launch Muchmusic as Canada's first VJ. A former Second City Touring Company member and acclaimed songwriter, Ward has written for Diana Ross, Hilary Duff, The Backstreet Boys and many others. Ward received the 1990 Songwriter of the Year JUNO Award for Alannah Myles’ hit, "Black Velvet".
