Vitus "V" Spehar is an accomplished TikToker, political advocate and general good friend. Their core brand, Under The Desk News, started out as a series expanding on news events in a nutshell and quickly became GenZ and Millennials go-to source for news. V has mastered the art of short-form, giving audiences brief recaps of notable headlines daily.

Within just a few years of starting the account, they’ve built a loyal following of over 3 million subscribers who turn in daily for content that informs and educates. V’s in-depth citizen journalism led them to collaborate with notable figures like former President Obama, President Biden and a dozen plus members of Congress to lucidly inform and push for civic participation.

They’ve even brought their humanity first style coverage to audio, hosting Lemonada Media’s podcast V Interesting which debuted in the top 10 News podcasts in June 2022 and has held a steady place in the Top 25 news podcasts since.
