She’s only 23-years-old and to some she has one of the coolest jobs in the world. Gabi Gregg recently won a first of its kind type of job this past Sunday when she was announced as MTV’s new “Twitter Jockey.”
The new job will entail popular culture reporting using Twitter, Facebook, blogs and MTV’s own online presence. Gregg won the title after a nationwide vote.
Raised in Detroit, but now living in Chicago, Gabi Gregg is also the founder of the fashion blog Young, Fat and Fabulous. The “Twitter Jockey” position is an updated version of the network’s VJ gig – a famed job many of us real music junkies have wanted for years.
Today we say congrats and cheers to Gabi Gregg on her new gig. Let’s look out for her reporting skills in the near future. To read more about MTV’s new “Twitter Jockey,” visit TheRoot.com.
