Terrence and Rocsi made their official announcement Tuesday night that they will, in fact, be leaving ‘106 & Park’ after hosting the show for the last seven years. We told you they were rumored to be departing from their hosting duties but with last night’s statement it was made official.
In his own statement, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, Stephen J. Hill, had this to say:
“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 very emotional announcement, sharing some of their most memorial moments 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, while Rocsi added, “Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young Black culture. It continues to be our honor to do this for you.”
With the success of ‘Think Like A Man’, it’s no secret, Terrence J may have his eyes set on Hollywood while Rocsi would like to go behind the scenes and to do more script writing and acting herself.
We wish them well.
