In addition to being the most energetic music countdown show on the planet with exciting show elements and superstar guests, 106 & PARK is also known for providing viewers with the latest news affecting the urban community - and the topic of HIV/AIDS is no exception. During this year's World AIDS Day, hosts Terrence and Rocsi, along with surprise celebrity guests and HIV/AIDS experts will sound off about the nation's leading killer of African Americans and encourage viewers to know the facts and their status surrounding the deadly disease.

On Monday, December 1 at 7:30 p.m.*, ARE YOU POSITIVE? profiles four young Americans - two of whom are living with HIV, two who are not -- who open up their lives, sharing what they do for work and fun, as well as their passions and dreams, to challenge the stereotypes about who HIV affects. In the final act, the characters reveal their status and talk, with inspiring openness, about how HIV has affected each of their lives.

ARE YOU POSITIVE? is a production of BET News. Grant Clark serves as producer for the special with Russ Torres as supervising producer and Keith Brown as executive producer.
