Downtown Julie Brown
Downtown Julie Brown is a London-based actress and Sirius XM DJ, but is best known as the host of Club MTV (1985-1992). The show had a format similar to American Bandstand but featured an exclusive lineup of dance music. From this came her famous catch phrase “Wubba Wubba Wubba” after she accidentally read the tee shirt of a camera crew member who was holding the cue cards while on live TV. MTV capitalized on the confusion between Downtown Julie Brown and comic actress Julie Brown by sending the pair together as correspondents for MTV news, as well as by them “facing” each other on both their shows “Club MTV” and “Just Say Julie”.
After leaving MTV, she then moved to Los Angeles and went on to host the E Entertainment Channel’s Gossip Show. She also became the host of the syndicated radio program “American Dance Traxx” in 1992 and 1993. She has appeared in a number of movies, including “Spy Hard”, “Spring Break 83′” and “The Weird Al Show”, to name a few. Brown is currently a host on Sirius XM “90’s On 9”.
