On Dec. 19, the lights of BET’s 106 & Park will go off. The popular music variety show is ending after 14 years on the air.
BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill said in a statement, “All of us have been touched by 106 & Park. Now it’s time for 106 & Park, as a daily TV entity, to take a bow and exit.”
The show is being reformatted to become a digital-only series.
“It’ll be very exciting to connect with the millions of people that are already engaged with 106 & Park and other BET digital and social media entities and bring content that will further evolve the 106 & Park brand — and enhance the overall BET Networks brand," Hill continued. "As we transition to the digital space, we look to continue 106 & Park’s role as both a leader of and a mirror to youth culture. We’ll have more information to share about how that is to roll out very soon.”
The show is currently hosted by Canadian singer Keshia Chante and former rapper Bow Wow (who goes by Shad Moss these days). In its long reign on the airwaves, 106 & Park has played host to countless top entertainers and even First Lady Michelle Obama.
