Cancelled! BET’s ‘106 & Park’ To “Take A Bow And Exit”
BET confirmed on Friday afternoon that their longstanding show, 106 & Park will host its last show on December 19.
According to the network, the show, which has been running for a whopping 14-years, will continue airing on a digital platform only. BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials, Stephen Hill said in a statement that it’s time for the show to “take a bow and exit.”
“It’s been a great 14-year run as America’s top music/variety show on cable. And now that very valuable brand is going to take its talents to the digital realm. The interactive brand you helped build, 106 & Park, is alive and well…and it’s moving to the space in which our audience NOW interacts with music the most: online. 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. 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, which is currently be hosted by Shad Moss and Keisha Chante, will still put on its annual New Year’s Eves special, 106 & PARTY, along with live event experiences at the BET Awards and BET Experience.
