Martha Quinn Biography
She got the MTV job even though her prior on-camera experience had been limited to a few Television Commercials. Rolling Stone magazine readers selected her as "MTV's Best-Ever VJ" years later. Quinn's petite, Girl Next Door personality made her extremely popular among viewers.
Singer Mojo Nixon created a song that was both a tribute to Martha Quinn and a criticism of MTV. It was titled "Stuffin' Martha's Muffin". [[Aztec Two-Step]] featured the tune "I'm in Love with the Girl on MTV" on their 1986 album Living in America as a tribute to Quinn.
In [[1990 in television|1990]], Quinn appeared on the short-lived Brady Bunch sequel [[Brady Bunch#The Bradys|The Bradys]]. Quinn played Tracy, who married [[List of The Brady Bunch characters#Bobby Brady|Bobby Brady]] (played by Mike Lookinland).

Career in the 2000s
In 2005, Quinn joined Sirius Satellite Radio network. From her home in Malibu, she hosts a one-hour weekly show on the Big '80s channel called Gods of the Big '80s. (Indeed, all of the other original MTV VJs also have shows on Big '80s, with the exception of J. J. Jackson, who is deceased.) On the [[September 22]], 2005 episode of Comedy Central's new series Showbiz Show David Spade, Quinn appeared as herself in mock archival footage (dating back to 1983) from her MTV days. In two separate bumper skits, Quinn sarcastically foretold considerably bizarre behavior from stars Michael Jackson and [[Sting (musician)|Sting]]. Subsequent episodes took shots at Whitney Houston and Tommy Lee.
In 2007, Quinn lent her name, face and voice to The '80s Game with Martha Quinn, a PC trivia game developed by Funkitron. The game featured multiple-choice questions about '80s culture in categories including music, politics, television, sports, movies and celebrities.
