MTV logo

From its launch on August 1, 1981 until March 18, 2009, the "Music Television" caption was included underneath the logo. Many MTV fans recognize this logo because of its unique design that allows it to become anything.

MTV Logo 2010

Since 2009 on the premiere of FNMTV, MTV had showed a revised and chopped down version of its traditional logo during most of its on air programming.[2] In October 2009, rumors surfaced about MTV dropping the "Music Television" caption from its logo.[3] It became MTV's official logo on March 19, 2009, when it debuted on MTV's website. MTV dropped "Music Television" for the very first time, altering the basic structure of the logo. The tagline "Music Television" was eliminated to reflect the network's dramatic decrease in music-related programming. Notice that the other lower parts of the logo are removed. Music videos still air on the channel, as part of its early morning AMTV block, which replaced FNMTV in 2009.
