BET has announced that the network is going to cancel 106th & Park. However that is just on our television screens. As of December 19th, if you go online you will still be able to watch the show. BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill issued a press release about the direction of the show.
“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.
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.”
Stephen Hill had some things to say on his personal Facebook page about the changing of the show.
This is what happens when people who don’t know nothing about the culture try to get involve in everything and be the center of attention. Always running up for a selfie always in the mix. Stay your ass in the office. You ever see Jerry Jones trying to suit up?
The show has not been as popular since the departure of AJ and Free. What will happen to Bow Wow aka Mr. 106th & Park and Keshia Chante? Reports say their hosting will end next month. BET will still air their New Years Eve Specials and when they are live at the awards shows.
Will you still watch the show?
