After over 7 years, BET’s hosts Rocsi Diaz (real name Raquel Roxanne Diaz) and Terrence J (real name Terrence Jenkins) will be leaving BET’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 “Free” 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 Rocsi’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. [Page Six]
