The rumor mill was steady churning last night, as Twitter-ers commemorated the legacy of BET's 106 & Park. But was it true?
News sites ran the word that popular BET music countdown show, 106 & Park, announced that it will no longer be on the air. It was reported that the show's Twitter page tweeted the following a few hours ago, "We sadly announce that on September 28th, 2012, we will air our last episode." While hosts Terrence J and Rocsi Diaz both announced their departure from the show this past May, many believed that they would be the last footnotes to bookend a 12-year legacy.
But thanks to the wonders of social media, and the Internets, BET's 106 & Park followed up with confirmation of the show's future, which should make audiences and long time fans happy:
BET's Stephen Hill even chimed in to put the final nail in the coffin for any would-be 106 & Park detractor, saying via Twitter, "No, [the show] is not [cancelled]. Not even close!" We can't wait to see who will be filling in the big boots of Terrence and Rocsi on October 1st.
