He first covered the red carpet at the Oscars in 1989, for MTV, where he was the host of the network's movie show, "The Big Picture." From 1987 to 1996, he was an editor and writer for the movie magazine Premiere.

Virk, who is also hosting Oscar.com's "The Oscars Insider" digital series this year, has been a sports and pop culture commentator for ESPN since 2010.
