“We are excited to be part of Westwood One’s BET Radio Network, ” said Ebro Darden, VP of programming, Emmis NY and program director at WQHT. ”Terrence and Rosci have become staples within the Hip-Hop and R&B music culture while hosting BET’s 106 & Park Countdown over the last several years. It only makes sense to bring these high profile personalities to the most influential Hip-Hop radio station in the world. They are smart, full of energy and passionate about their fans. We welcome them to the Hot 97 family.”
