From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Martha Quinn (born May 11, 1959 in Albany, New York) is best known as one of the original video jockeys on MTV. Prior to joining MTV, Quinn graduated from Ossining High School in 1977 and NYU in 1981. She got the MTV job even though her prior on-camera experience had been limited to a few television commercials. Rolling Stone magazine readers selected her as "MTV's Best-Ever VJ" years later. Quinn's petite, cutesy, girl-next-girl personality won the hearts of many viewers.

In 1990, Quinn appeared on the short-lived Brady Bunch sequel The Bradys. Quinn played a love interest to Bobby Brady (played by Mike Lookinland). She joined Ed McMahon as a co-host for Star Search in 1994. She was a bi-weekly correspondent on The Early Show in 1999.

She is the step-daughter of Jane Bryant Quinn, personal finance columnist.

In 2005, Quinn joined SIRIUS Satellite Radio network. On the September 22, 2005 episode of Comedy Central's new series The Showbiz Show with David Spade, Quinn appeared as herself in mock archival footage (dating back to 1983) from her MTV days. In two separate bumper skits, Quinn sarcastically foretold considerably bizarre behavior from stars Michael Jackson, Sting and Whitney Houston.
