Happy birthday to one of the main reasons why I enjoyed MTV so much in the 80s, Nina Blackwood. Along with Martha Quinn, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter and J. J. Jackson, Nina Blackwood was one of the five original MTV VJs. After leaving MTV Nina hosted her own “Rock Report” for Entertainment Tonight. She also hosted Solid Gold from 1986 to 1988. Blackwood currently broadcasts from San Diego radio station FM 94-9. Today is also the birthday of British actress Rachel Ward. Her movie credits include “Against All Odds” and “Dead Men Wear Plaid.”
Both Blackwood and Ward are in their 50s. Who’s older?
