According to the news outlet, executives are thrilled to see what the funnyman has up his sleeve for the annual event. 

"We cannot wait for Chris to set fire to the BET Awards stage with his unique brand of mayhem," said Stephen Hill, president of music programming and specials. "We've been chasing him for years and we couldn't be happier that he is hosting the show in this special year: the year we embark on the three-day-long BET Experience."

The Associated Press reports the shows ends the three-day BET Experience, which starts June 28 at the Nokia Center with a performance by Beyonce. The event will also feature other singers like R. Kelly, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Lion.
