After more than a decade on the air, BET’s “106 & Park” bid farewell during an episode, which aired on Friday, December 19th.
Among those present during the last episode of the music video countdown show were its original hosts, Free Marie and A.J. Calloway. The duo served as the original hosts of “106 & Park,” which premiered in 2000, and went on to host the show for five years.
Calloway offered a thank you to “106 & Park” fans in a post uploaded to Instagram on the day of the final show.
Last month, it was announced that “106 & Park” would air its final show in December of this year. According to the network, BET will continue to air special episodes of “106 & Park,” including New Year’s Eve’s “106 & Party,” on various occasions.
BET will also reportedly continue with the show thanks to an online format.
