This past May, news broke that hosts Terrence J and Rocsi were planning to leave BET's "106 & Park" after nearly a decade of hosting duties. Now, HipHopWired has broken the news that YMCMB rapper Bow Wow will help take over hosting duties for the music video countdown program.
Bow Wow will be one of four new hosts for the TV show, which recently entered its twelfth year on the air. He will join recording artists Miss Mykie and veteran hosts of BET's "2011 Notarized Countdown" Shorty Da Prince and Paigion in presenting the program.
Cash Money co-founder Baby spoke on Bow Wow's involvement in the program. "Bow has this in the bag! In addition to being a great rapper, he is a natural personality with great star power and style," he said. "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".
Bow Wow's hardly a stranger to BET's daytime program; the rapper has racked the greatest number of appearances and fan-voted #1 singles on the show since it began.
Bow Wow and company officially began their hosting duties today.
