According to AOL, BET plans to cancel their once popular show 106 & Park. The final air date will be December 19 of this year. The music video countdown program has been on the network for fourteen years. The show started with hosts AJ Calloway and Free and this is when it had a large fan base. The hosts today are Bow Wow and Keshia Chante, who have yet to comment on the news.
106 & Park will continue online where followers can interact with the music. It will be back on the air for specials such as New Years Eve and prior to the BET Awards, so it’s not goodbye forever. Just view it as a change of pace, from television to the internet. Fans of the show seem to have mixed feelings regarding the news. Many think the show should have been cancelled after the first hosts left to pursue other options. The show just never seemed the same after their departure. 106 $ Park still had a great run and will surely be missed by its many fans like my friend Marc Sparks.
