When a scandal broke over the availability of bath salts, MTV’s brand image was damaged and its value diminished.
Its brand image is now the focus of an intense battle between brand owners and brands that want to sell their products in the same way they sell products from the makers of the bath salt they use.
MTV’s CEO, Rob Schmitz, was forced to defend his decision to not allow bath salts in MTV’s advertising in the wake of the scandal.
Schmitzer was also forced to apologise to his fans, the media and to MTV’s parent company Viacom after it emerged that he had secretly used the company’s name in an email to employees in 2012, a move that could have compromised MTV’s legal case.
Here’s how the controversy unfolded.
Who is Rob Schmitz?
The man behind MTV is the head of Viacus Media and Entertainment, a conglomerate of media companies that includes Viacotown, MTV, MTV2, MTV Networks and Viacohost.
Schmittz joined MTV in 2005 after years as a partner at Sony Pictures Entertainment, the video company owned by Sony Pictures.
In 2011, he became chief operating officer of Visconti, a video streaming company owned in part by the conglomerate.
He joined Viaco in 2014.
MTV is a leading brand, producing a wide range of entertainment content, including movies, music and television, as well as television shows and movies.
Viacos content is seen across the entertainment, sporting and news industries, with MTV2 and MTV Networks offering some of the most popular programming in the United States.
