BET has revealed that after 14 years, music show 106 & Park will be going off the air, and will continue digitally on BET.com.
“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.
“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.”
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.
“I’m not trying to minimize it; this is a very big change,” Hill added. “We thank all the people who have worked on the show over the years; the talented hosts, the hard-working staff, production crews and all the incredible guests we’ve had. Most of all, we’d like to humbly thank the ‘livest audience,’ both in studio and at home, who fueled this landmark TV show from the very beginning. Meet you in the digital domain.”
