Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials at BET, said,
We chose to break the mold. These 4 talented folks will bring spirit, fresh perspective and crazy fun to the 106 & Park stage. Shorty, Paigion and Miss Mykie are clearly stars and luckily for us, started gelling as a collective during The Search.On the sneak tip, we were pursuing Bow Wow hoping he might be interested. We were thrilled when he said “yes”. The energy is palpable. The crew is assembled. We are excited about this new future of 106 & Park.”
Cash Money Records co-founder, Birdman, congratulated Bow on his new gig,
Bow has this in the bag! In addition to being a great rapper, he is a natural personality with great star power and style. His brings a new air to the network and my brother ‘Slim’ and I couldn’t be more proud. This is another great example of YMCMB expanding our presence in the television and film world.”
Having sold more than 10 million albums and over 14 million digital assets, Bow Wow is excited about his new gig and taking 106 & Park to the next level.
I am very excited to take on this new journey in my career with BET. I’m all about branding myself and not just in music, but in TV and movies. Everyone always wants to compare me to the Fresh Prince, well now they can call me the Fresh Prince of 106 & Park. Get ready for a whole new world.”
