AJ Calloway and Free, the pioneer hosts of 106 & Park are hosting the final episode of the No. 1 cable music variety show tonight at 6 p.m.
First airing on September 11, 2000, 106 & Park has been on BET for 14 years. BET announced a few months ago that 106 & Park will no longer air on BET, but will take on a digital platform. 106 & Park will also continue to air their specials on BET, such as, it’s annual New Year’s Eve show, the BET Experience, 106 & Party and more.
AJ and Free took to their instagram pages to express their excitement over being on the final episode of the show:
Free: “Soooo. On Friday December 19, AJ Calloway and I get to do it one more time like we used to do it.. Together for the final act of 106 & Park.

Join us as we say goodbye…. and celebrate 14 years of amazing guests, talented hosts and the livest audience on the ONE and ONLY 106 & Park! Salute BET.
AJ: “This Friday Dec 19th 2014 we will be in the building to host the final 106 & park AJ Calloway and Miss Free this is the end of an amazing journey that started in a small studio called Metropolis on the corner of 106th St and Park Ave in Spanish Harlem on Sept 11, 2000 and it impacted so many around the world.

106 & Park has gone through many different looks and host,s but the core values of music and entertainment has always been at the forefront of this show. Growing up watching this show it is kind of bittersweet to see the show go, but I am excited to see what will come in the future.
