BET’s ‘106 and Park’ Gets Cancelled, Becomes ‘Digital-Only’



After a 14-year run, BET’s 106 and Park has been cancelled — sort of.

While the show is being cut from television programming, the show will live on as ‘digital-only’. The last live on-air show will be on December 19th, 2014.

Aside from that, the 106 & Park brand will continue to produce its annual New Year’s Eve show,106 & PARTY, along with live event experiences at the BET Awards and BET Experience.

Stephen Hill had this to say about the cancelation:

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.

Are you sad to see it go?
