Stephen J. Hill, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, confirms 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.”
Terrence adds “We are humbled at the opportunity to be a part of your lives,” before promising that “we have a huge farewell show coming for you guys. We’re going to be leaving with a bang.”
Which leads us to question who will replace the duo? Many media outlets seem to be rooting for BET Revolving Reporters Paigion and Shorty da Prince who are both radio personalities for Radio One’s HOT 107.5 in Detroit.
