Juliya Chernetsky Introduction
Juliya Chernetsky — usually just "Juliya" or "Mistress Juliya" to her fans — is a television personality best known for her stint on the music-themed network Fuse, formerly known as MuchMusicUSA. She hosted the heavy metal-themed program Uranium and a call-in and e-mail advice program called Slave to the Metal, for which Sirius Radio recently signed her to do a radio version. She currently hosts several online programs that she self-promotes.
Chernetsky was born in Ukraine and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She attended Fort Hamilton High School and Hunter College. A former model, she was a big fan of MMUSA and a frequent poster on their bulletin boards. She was chosen to make her broadcast debut on the show Tastemakers. Her brashness and sex appeal made her an instant favorite, and after a year on Tastemakers, she moved on to host Uranium in June 2002.
Uranium would offer one of the few televised outlets for heavy metal music and become one of MMUSA's (which changed its name to Fuse TV in 2003) most popular programs. Chernetsky's popularity led to the debut of a spin-off entitled Metal Asylum which followed a similar format and lasted over 100 episodes. Around this same time, she began hosting the music-themed advice show Slave to the Metal. These programs allowed Chernetsky to interview many of the biggest names in heavy metal as well as her personal idols, including her first interview with Trent Reznor. Within these few short years, she established herself as a fixture of music journalism and the metal community, gaining exposure for new bands and exclusive access to events such as the Ozzfest 10th anniversary.
In February 2006, Juliya's program Metal Asylum disappeared from the air without any explanation from the network or Chernetsky herself. In early March 2006, the website for Fuse was redesigned and Chernetsky along with fellow Fuse VJ Adonis Thompson were not on the list. Broadcasts of the F-List were played in Metal Asylum's timeslot during the month of February and on the Fuse message board it was stated that her contract had not been renewed which irked many loyal viewers. Previous rumors had stated that Juliya's absence was due to her recovering from surgery but the belief is that Chernetsky and Fuse parted ways.
Chernetsky is also pursuing an acting career as stated recently on her MySpace page and also filming pilots for new music-related shows to be shopped around. Chernetsky confirmed her exit from Fuse via her MySpace page and details the fact Fuse wanted to become more family friendly and none of her programs exhibited that quality, and she was then removed. Following her removal, her attorneys met with Fuse over the dispute of ownership of Slave to the Metal. The issue was not carried any further, and Juliya and Fuse ended all contact at that point.
After over two years of being absent from Fuse, Juliya announced via Myspace her return to Fuse to do a weekly hard rock/metal countdown show. She also appeared on The Weekly Riff, a panel show hosted by Steven Smith. On September 22, 2008 she replaced Sami Jarroush as the host of No. 1 Countdown Rock
