The Jasmine Brand has just reported that “BET’s hosts Rocsi Diaz (real name Raquel Roxanne Diaz) and Terrence J (real name Terrence Jenkins) will be leaving BET’s 106 & Park.” Rocsi and Terrence will both be pursuing their acting careers after their leave…Rocsi will even be moving to Los Angeles.
106 & Park’s first hosts were A. J. Calloway and WPGC’s own, Marie “Free” Wright. Both hosted from 2000 until 2005. From 2005-2006 Julissa Bermudez and former WPGC radio personality Big Tigger, hosted. Finally, in 2006 Rocsi, former afternoon radio host of Power 92.3 in Chicago, and Terrence J won BET’s New Faces Contest and became hosts.
With the Terrence and Rocsi situation, the Jasmine Brand reports that BET “is going in a new direction, with a number of new and old programs being changed and re-invented.” Which seems to be very true, after the news about Tia and Pooch’s departure from, “The Game.”
