Goodbye BET 106 & Park {Video} Final Episode Hosted By Bow Wow, AJ & Free, Terrence J & Rocsi Diaz +More

Published On December 19, 2014 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

The most popular black music video show ever finishes its 14-year run as a daily televised program with a two-hour live farewell, 6-8 p.m on December 19, 2014. It isn’t disappearing. The regular program is moving online, to bet.com, and BET says it will resurface on the air with periodic specials. But the daily countdowns, more than 3,000 since the show launched on Sept. 11, 2000, won’t be part of BET’s programming any more.
The final edition will feature performances by Fabolous and Ne-Yo, plus guest appearances and shout-outs from dozens of guests and performers on the show over the years. The past guest roster is an A-list, with the likes of President and Mrs. Barack Obama, Denzel Washington, Jay Z, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Kanye West, LeBron James, 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake. The show itself has been known for features like Freestyle Friday and the Video Hall of Fame, which inducted any video that made the countdown for 65 weeks in a row. More to the point, “106 & Park” ensured television exposure for artists whose access to airtime on other shows was often limited. There were debates among music fans whether the show was cutting-edge — the same discussion that used to swirl around earlier music shows from “American Bandstand” to “Soul Train.”

All previous hosts are expected back Friday to help current hosts Keshia Chanté and Shad Moss bring it home. That will include AJ and Free (200-2005), Big Tigger and Julissa (2005-2006), Terrence J and Rocsi (2006-2012) and “The Search” hosts Miss Mykie, Paigion and Shorty da Prince.
