NEW YORK, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- A one-hour, U.S. interactive special called "A Conversation With President Obama" will air live and commercial-free on MTV, MTVu, BET, Centric, TR3s and CMT.

The Oct. 14 program also will stream live on MTV.com, BET.com and CMT.com, MTV said Tuesday.

About 250 young people representing various backgrounds, interests and political viewpoints are expected to participate in the MTV News and BET News co-production, which will be moderated by MTV's Sway Calloway, BET's April Woodard and CMT's Katie Cook, MTV said.

"Our brands reach and connect with the broadest swath of young people in the U.S. because we understand their interests, their passions and their concerns," Viacom President and Chief Executive Officer Philippe Dauman said in a statement. "We know that America's youth hold strong views about the challenges our country faces as well as their own aspirations for the future. We are honored that the president has chosen to appear on our cable networks to continue his dialogue with the nation's young people."
