So far, BET has seen great success with their programming choices after being acquired by Viacom. One of the more successful shows, that even surpassed the now defunct Viacom favorite, MTV’s TRL, is their hosted music program 106 & Park.
Terrence and Rocsi have been the hosts for the last seven years after a similarly depressing departure by their predecessors AJ and Free. Hosting the popular teen music show has led to outside projects like Terrence’s role in the wildly popular film “Think Like A Man”. But, the two have announced their departure from 106 & Park and say that their departure is something they prayed about. Terrence said:
“By no stretch of the imagination was it an easy decision, but it’s the right one and it’s come after a lot of prayer, a lot of thought, and a lot of consideration. First, we’d like to start by thanking BET. This has been an incredible opportunity and we’re looking forward to continuing our relationship…”
Check out their “special announcement” Wednesday. They made it clear that they’re not leaving tomorrow and there will be a “huge” farewell for them both, so stick around…they will be.
