Sad news for all my 106 & Park fans. THEJASMINEBRAND reports after over 7 years, BETâ€™s hosts Rocsi Diaz 32(real name Raquel Roxanne Diaz) and Terrence J 31 (real name Terrence Jenkins) will be leaving BETâ€™s 106 & Park. Both will be pursuing their acting careers, while Rocsi will be moving to Los Angeles.
The original hosts were A. J. Calloway and Marie â€œFreeâ€ Wright, who held their positions from 2000 until 2005. Then, Julissa Bermudez and Big Tigger (of Rap City) hosted the 2005-2006 season. And in 2006, Rocsi (who was a radio host on Power 92.3 in Chicago in the afternoon), and Terrence J became hosts after winning the BET New Faces Contest.
In terms of Terrence and Rocsiâ€™s departure, we are told that the network is going in a new direction, with a number of new and old programs being changed and re-invented. No reps have released statements, but we, along with a number of outlets have received personal inside information. Stay tuned for more details.
