Sway Calloway            

Reporter & Host for MTV

An icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of MTV, Sway Calloway has been a staple within music-news for more than a decade. Already a vanguard radio personality, record producer and hip-hop artist, Sway joined the MTV News team in 2000 and has been front and center for some of music's biggest moments.

Sway first caught the public's eye when he and his partner King Tech (Tech) staged break dancing and rap performances in and around their hometown of Oakland, California. Recognizing Sway's instincts for great sound and promising talent, Interscope enlisted him and Tech to produce an album called This or That, featuring artists such as Eminem, KRS-One and RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan.

Sway has been a key correspondent for MTV's Choose or Lose and Power of ’12 campaign for the channel. Since his involvement, he has interviewed various political leaders like Bill Clinton, Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie, Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, John McCain and Mitch Romney. He’s also sat down with President Barak Obama four times.

Sway's other MTV News endeavors have included the “All Eyes” series which featured top artists like Kanye West and 50 Cent, "MTV News Now: Jay-Z vs. Nas: Beats, Battles & Beef," "MTV News Presents: After the Storm," RapFix Live and the highly anticipated yearly Hottest MC’s list.

In addition, Sway is an integral part of MTV News' annual live-events that include red carpet coverage of the MTV Video Music Awards, MTV European Awards and Grammy pre-show. Sway serves as an MTV Executive Producer and brings new programming ideas to the station. He’s also been the voice of and hosted for the channel.

His work continues throughout the nation and community where he has been a part of various panels and discussions hosting and moderating on important issues like Hate Crimes, Racism and Education. He also plays a major role with the Viacom’s Get Schooled program that touches students across the country to encourage them to stay and graduate from school.

Lastly, be sure to listen Monday through Friday on Sirius XM’s popular morning show, "SWAY IN THE MORNING" on the Shade45 channel entertaining the “Citizens” from 8 am-12 pm (est.)
