Confirmed: Rocsi & Terrence J Leave ‘106 & Park’

Published: Wednesday 30th May 2012 by TGJ

Following a snowball of speculation, it was today confirmed that Rocsi Diaz and Terrence J, hosts of BET’s 106 & Park, will be leaving the show after seven years.

Stephen J. Hill, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, announced the news in a statement:

“Today, after seven exciting years, 106 & Park hosts Terrence J and Rocsi announced that they will be leaving the show. It is no secret that there are a number of opportunities coming their way and we’re fortunate that they’ve been with 106 & Park for so long. They will be staying on the show for a while, so that we can have a “victory lap” — a celebration of their years at the helm of 106 & Park— before their departure. Terrence J and Rocsi are destined for great success and we at BET Networks will always take pride in being their original home — and be a place where I hope they’ll always feel welcome.”

*******

The duo made the emotional announcement on-air during today’s 106 & Park, recounting stories from their years on the show. “The first day I cracked the mic on 106, I was staying on a cot in a basement,” Terrence said, with Rocsi adding, “Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young Black culture. It continues to be our honor to do this for you.”

“We are humbled at the opportunity to be a part of your lives,” Terrence concluded, promising that “we have a huge farewell show coming for you guys. We’re going to be leaving with a bang.” {Source}

Undoubtedly a polarizing pair, their departure begs many a question. What will the fate of 106 be? Who’ll replace them? Will you still watch? Needless to say, interesting times lay ahead.

    oh wow! I don’t think that it should be someone young. I think someone that’s experienced should take the job and the show needs to be desperately revamped. I haven’t watched in years unless one of my faves are on it. Terrence will be ok, I just saw him on enews but I dont know about Rocsi.

As far as social media groups go, Black Twitter undoubtedly stands as one of net’s (and Pop culture’s) longest and strongest reigning force. How one might define it?
