Considered as an original Vj for MTV Nina had started her career from a young age.

From introducing videos to hosting programs and reporting the news, the music channel's talking heads have entertained and informed; Nina has done it all to entertain people.

On an interview she gave to thedailybeast.com on 2013, Nina had a lot to say about her experience and career. She said;
Oh god. Well, basically, when I moved from New York to L.A., people were saying “What happened to Nina?” “Oh, she took some job at some cable music program.” Cable was in its infancy, so it wasn’t like it is now with 200-something channels. [MTV] grew as cable grew, little by little. Initially MTV wasn’t available in New York, so on a day-to-day basis we didn’t know how big we were, but when they would send us out on personal appearances, we were mobbed! We’d go, “Wow, this is really taking off!” And then once we hit New York, it was like, “See ya later.”.
And in the same interview, she talked about how the show has changed and is not as before and how she left;
I think really when the first nonmusic program started. I had left by then.
After, she and the network parted amicably in '86, after which Blackwood signed an unprecedented dual show contract with Paramount Television, anchoring both her own weekly “Rock Report” on Entertainment Tonight, and co-hosting TV’s award winning show “Solid Gold.” Blackwood then acted in movies like "ViceSquad"(1982), "Reckless Kelly" (1993), and" I Crave Rock & Roll" (1996) she started her radio host career in 1999, Blackwood and longtime manager/producer Danny Sheridan launched a nationally syndicated radio show for United Stations Radio Network called "Nina Blackwood's Absolutely 80's".
In 1997 she did TV series called "Lois and Clark:" The New Adventure of Superman" and in 1998 another series "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Colo." She then performed as part of the 2003 road company of "The Vagina Monologues."
She currently hosts a weekday show called the" 80s on 8 with Nina Blackwood" which was debuted in July 2016 and also has a drama show "Citizens" which is in post-production and will be premiered on 2017. Looking at her career so far it will not be wrong to say that she is married to her profession and has limited time for her family as over a decade Nina has taken no break and has done back to back programs.
Here is the video clip where Nina was hosting the show back in 1985;
