Terrence J and Rocsi, the longstanding hosts of BET’s “106 & Park,” have announced that they will be leaving the show.
The duo announced their departure on Tuesday (May 29) during the show.
“The first day I cracked the mic on 106, I was staying on a cot in a basement,” said Terrence.
Rocsi continued, “Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young Black culture. It continues to be our honor to do this for you.”
BET.com provided a statement from Stephen J. Hill, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks:
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.
“We are humbled at the opportunity to be a part of your lives,” added Terrence during the show, assuring fans that “we have a huge farewell show coming for you guys. We’re going to be leaving with a bang.”
