VH1 Reveals “100 Greatest Artists Of All Time” Starting today September 6. VH1 will be hosting a 4-night special that will feature the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.” The new special will be hosted by Jim Shearer, the host of VH1’s “Top 20 Video Countdown,” and will feature some of the greatest musicians of all time. Shearer will take fans on a trip back in time from 1998 to see how much the list has changed in the new age of iPods and online videos.
