Rocsi and Terrence J to Leave BET’s 106 & Park?

Since 2000, BET’s 106 & Park has been the go-to program for hip-hop’s main video countdown. With screaming teenage fans, live interviews and performances and its Freestyle Friday rap battle competition, 106 has been a force for over a decade.

Well, the hit show may be losing its two hosts. According to the New York Post, 106 & Park’s hosts, both Rocsi Diaz and Terrence J, will be leaving the show to pursue acting.

On Thursday (May 17), the NY Post reported that Diaz has her sights on Hollywood and is leaving the BET show after nearly seven years to move to California and pursue acting. The Post continued by reporting that she scored a role in an upcoming project starring Lynn Whitfield. The New York City tabloid went on to state that Terrence J too would be leaving the show to pursue acting.

If the Post’s report is true, it will mark quite an end to the hosts’ run on 106. Rocsi and Terrence became hosts of the show in 2006 after winning the BET New Faces Contest.

The duo, especially Terrence, was known for perhaps being more playful and catering to the younger crowd than the previous hosts, A.J. Calloway and Marie “Free” Wright, who hosted the countdown show from 2000-2005. From there, Big Tigger (formerly the host of Rap City) and Julissa Bermudez co-hosted the show till the end of the 2005-06 season, before Terrence and Rocsi took over, interviewing a laundry list of rappers and R&B artists through the years and turning in memorable moments in the process.—Mark Lelinwalla
