This weekend, Black Entertainment Television, or BET, announced the cancellation of live music video countdown show “106 & Park” — ending its 14-year run on the air as it moves to the digital realm.
On the show’s website, BET's President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill said, “It’s time for 106 & Park, as a daily TV entity, to take a bow and exit. … It’s moving to the space in which our audience NOW interacts with music the most: online.”
The announcement came with very little fanfare, which doesn’t exactly speak to the pop-cultural significance the show has had for nearly 15 years.
