BET’s “106 & Park” has been canceled and will air its final show this December 19th.
The long running music video countdown show will be reduced to a digital format appearing on the BET website.
“It’s been a great 14-year run as America’s top music/variety show on cable,” BET’s president, Stephen Hill, said in a statement on the company’s website on Friday (November 14). “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.” h/t mtv
“106″ became known for its Freestyle Friday segments.
Despite moving off air for its daily shows, “106 & Park” will still resurface for specials — like on New Year’s Eve and prior to the BET Awards – and oh yeah, I’m just going out for a pack of cigarettes.
