By Colin Greten

BET’s “106 & Park” will not be ending its twelve year run after all, amidst rumors that began with a now-deleted message from the show’s Twitter account. Yesterday, “106 & Park’s” account reportedly posted that September 28th, 2012 would be the last episode of the popular countdown program. After a short time the tweet was deleted, but not before it was seen by many, sparking rumors that the show would be done after Terrence J and Rocsi left.

In May, the show’s long-time hosts Terrence J and Rocsi both announced that they would be leaving at the end of September and the tweet lead some viewers to believe that the program would disappear with them. Tweets from frantic fans even reached, Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming. A short while later @106andpark tweeted once again, this time officially putting rumors to rest, stating that the show would return October 1st with new hosts. The show plans to give Terrence J and Rocsi a proper farewell, and start fresh with their new hosts.
