106 & Park
Aired: September 2000-Present
Nicknamed “The Black TRL” 106 & Park was a platform for the younger hip-hop generation. While TRL ruled from Times Square, 106 & Park made its home right in the heart of Harlem (106th Street and Park Avenue). The video countdown show has had a steady succession of hosts from original duo of A.J. and Free to the recently departed Terrence J and Rosci Diaz, who have all gone on to successful careers in entertainment.
