Its official!  Shad “Bow Wow” Moss is one of the four new hosts for BET’s long running music video countdown program, 106 & Park.

According to Hip HopDX, the rapper-actor joins recording artist Miss Mykie along with BET’s 2011 Notarized countdown hosts, Shorty Da Prince and Paigon. The network began looking for new hosts ever since May when it was announced that Terrance J and Rocsi would not be returning to the show.  Both have decided to pursue other careers in television and movies.

Cash Money co-founder Baby spoke about his artist’s 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,” 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”.

This new partnership with BET comes full circle for Bow Wow having appeared on the show more than any other artist as well as holding the record for most #1 fan-voted singles.  His official duties as co-host began yesterday.

Congratulations Bow Wow!
