Picture this: You just hopped off the school bus after a long week. You run in your room and turn the T.V. on to tune into the top 10 countdown. Everything is much simpler. 106 & Park was truly for the culture! Created in 2000, the daily show would feature music videos, celebrity interviews, and “Freestyle Fridays” all hosted in front of a live audience.
The show was on air for 14 years with hosts like A.J Holloway and Free (2000-2005), Julissa and Big Tigger (2005-2006), Terrence J and Rocsi (2006-2012), and Bow Wow and Keshia Chanté (2012-2014). When the show ended, many people around the country were heartbroken. After all, this was before social media was really big. It connected us all in a way. It gave new artists a platform.
