Bow Wow is One of the New '106 & Park' Hosts, Terrance and Rocsi Bid Farewell

The new faces of BET's 106 & Park
Last night premiered the new 106 & Park hosts after Terrance J and Rocsi wrapped up their final show on Friday (September 28). The two announced their departure back in June.


A couple surprises happened yesterday as the new hosts were revealed. Instead of two hosts, viewers were introduced to four and rapper Bow Wow is one of them! 

Bow Wow said he is taking a break with his rap career and will be at 106 & Park everyday to host along with the other three new additions.

The new faces are: 

Detroit native Paigon and STL's Shorty Da Prince.  The twosome campaigned together via social media for the past several months to get voted by the viewers to become the new hosts.  And after several guest hosting trials, the twosome have nabbed the job in an official capacity.

The fourth host is Howard University alum and Houston native Miss Mykie.  And she also is known for trying to launch a rap career.

I need to include my opinion really quick. I really like Paigon and Shorty Da Prince hosting together. They both vibe well together, are professional, not over the top and Paigon reminds me of Free, just a little. Miss Mykie on the other hand, she seems like she's a little too extra for me, like she's trying to hard at times. And, I'm not feeling Bow Wow as a host just yet. I also realize BET is trying something new, but two hosts are enough.

Watch the four new hosts speak on their appreciation for the opportunity HERE.

 
 Terrance and Rocsi had an emotional farewell show on Friday as they reminisced on their start seven years ago. La La Anthony and Pooch Hall hosted Friday's show and celebs like Jim Jones, Big Tigger, Julissa and French Montana came through to bid the "dynamic duo" farewell. 

Terrance and Rocsi got their start as 106 & Park hosts back in 2006 for the "New Faces" search after former hosts A.J. and Free left the show. Terrance said him and Rocsi had the opportunity to be on 106 because they were voted by the people. 

"I just remember, I was sleeping on couches at that point, my parents were real supportive of me, but it was that grind," Terrance remembers on his early stages of the auditioning process

"I really wanted this and I really wanted to be here, and I remember just being hungry... I still am. But, I just remember there... this is do or die."

Rocsi was a former radio personality in Chicago before her days as a 106 & Park host and she explained how rapper Ludacris pushed her to try out for the audition.

"I was like, they ain't gonna hire no little Spanish girl on BET, like that's not gonna happen," Rocsi said laughing.

"I really truly did not believe I was gonna be picked until Stephen Hill called us and I was like, 'you sure you got the right number? You know this is the little Spanish one.'"

As Terrance and Rocsi recapped on some of their favorite moments throughout the 106 years and their favorite interviews, Terrance also offered up some advice on anyone pursuing a dream.

"Never put limitations on anything. Anything is possible... Now as I leave here I have all the confidence in the world that any dreams that I have are achievable because of my time here, and it lets me know with all certainty that anything I believe in, anything that I pray on, anything that I work hard on, can be accomplished."

Terrance is currently a co-host on E! News during the week, working alongside Giuliana Rancic. Rocsi recently moved to California to embark on an acting career.
