Adam Curry began his career at MTV in 1987 as the host of Headbangers Ball and MTV's Top 20 Video Countdown. He left in the early '90s for other pursuits, but not before snatching up the domain MTV.com and pioneering the network's digital presence. Viacom later sued Curry for the domain name after he left MTV, and Curry continued on the path of the digital frontier. He became a podcasting pioneer and founded Mevio in 2005. He still hosts his No Agenda Podcast on Thursdays and Sundays.
