101.1 The Wiz Featured Video

After a 14 year run, BET is pulling its only entertainment show, 106 & Park, off the air. While we won’t get to see your favorite host interview some of the biggest stars in music or peep the latest video week nights at 6pm, you will still be able to catch ‘106 & Park’ online.

BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials, Stephen Hill, released a statement about the digital move.

“We all have our favorite moments from the show that has put youth culture on television daily since the first year of this century. We have pride in being involved with the show that has welcomed almost every movie star, music superstar and fresh-faced talent you can name (you can even throw in a first lady). We’ve all laughed with and been entertained by the young men and women hosts that have charmed us at 6 p.m. (and more recently 5 p.m.) each weekday.

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.”

BET will still air they NYE Party and BET Hip Hop Awards on television.

The last show will air on December 19th.
