Big Tigger          

TV and Radio Personality Known for of BET's "Rap City" and "106 & Park"

Darian "Big Tigger" Morgan, also known as Big Tigg, is an American television and radio personality best known as the host of BET's "Rap City" and "106 & Park."

While attending the University of Maryland, College Park, Big Tigger interned at Washington D.C. radio station WPGC 95.5 FM. At WPGC, Morgan worked alongside popular host Albie Dee and was promptly recognized for his ambition and charisma. His college internship evolved into a flourishing career. Soon Morgan, with his innovative freestyles, gained popularity on night radio. When the Bronx native returned to New York City in 2001, he departed D.C. as the highest rated, six-year undefeated nighttime radio champion.

He entered the television scene on voiceovers for Black Entertainment Television in 1996, while still working the radio circuit. Within a year, fans were watching him on-camera, in "Rap City's" Hip Hop News, and he advanced to become the co-host of "Rap City" in its tenth season, alongside Big Lez and Joe Clair. BET then changed the show's format, and Morgan became the lone video jockey. He hosted the show from 1999–2005, before being replaced by Mad Linx.

Big Tigger hosted BET's top rated show "106 & Park" until July 7, 2006 (replaced by Terrence J and Rocsi, winners of the BET New Faces Contest) and another show BET Style until its final episode on July 6, 2006. He also hosted numerous episodes of "BET: Uncut."

Until April 2013, Morgan hosted "Live In Tha Den" with Big Tigger, a syndicated radio show on weekends that aired on various Urban and Rhythmic formatted Hip-Hop/R&B stations across the country. On his show "Live In the Den," hip hop stars such as Jay-Z had made guest appearances. He also conducted his own countdown of the Top 20 Hip-Hop/R&B hits of the week throughout the show.

He replaced Star and Buc Wild on WWPR Power 1051 FM New York in 2006 with a temporary morning show, "Live With Tigger" with Egypt & Donnell Rawlings. He returned to WPGC 95.5 FM in 2007 as their weekday afternoon drive host (2-6pm). On April 12, 2010, Morgan weekday morning show from 6-10am and Saturday 8 a.m. to 12 noon on-air personality. As of January 2013, he took over the afternoon drive time slot (2-6PM) on WPGC's sister station, WVEE, in Atlanta.

Morgan began his rap career when he was featured on "Snake", a top-20 song from R. Kelly's 2003 album, Chocolate Factory, and a hidden track on Ginuwine's 2003 album The Senior. He boasts numerous vocal cameo appearances on albums for hip-hop artists including Method Man, O.G.C., Redman, Too Short and Pete Rock.
