Group says no to more MTVU spring breaks

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - For mtvU, the party's over in Panama City Beach.

The Bay County Tourist Development Council on Tuesday decided it won't do any more business with MTV's college network during future spring breaks.

Council members said the network's sponsored concerts brought unruly crowds to the area, which wasn't the type of tourists they wanted.

Council member Mike Bennett said that the group needs to "get out of the spring break business."

Council executive director Dan Rowe said this year the group paid $150,000 to work with mtvU, which broadcasts to more than 750 college campuses nationwide.
