Way down in viewership and clamoring for revived cultural relevance, MTV has picked English model Alexa Chung to host a new pop-culture-meets-media-2.0 show beginning June 15.

Dubbed “The Alexa Chung Show”, the daily gab-fest will feature Chung mixing and mingling with all kinds of pop-culture types while interacting view views back home via all sort of social-networking platforms.

Twenty-five year old Chung — who is mixed English and Chinese — comes to MTV after an impressive career with Britain’s Channel Four.

WE ASK: Is Chung — one of four kids — related to ultra-hottie Transracial Karen Chung, a British writer with whom we worked regularly at Wallpaper?

If anyone knows, please do share.
