After starting her career at the age of 16 at Hot 97 and becoming the “voice of New York,” Angie has decided to resign from the station. Yesterday she made the announcement on her afternoon show and then via an Instagram post.
“Today I resigned from HOT97. I am grateful to the Emmis family for my time with the company and the immeasurable way that it has shaped my life. We made history together in so many ways and I will cherish those memories and my friendships forever. This was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make but ultimately it is time to move on, to grow and to be challenged in new ways. Saying goodbye is always emotional and bitter sweet but I am extremely excited about the future. Thank you HOT97 and most importantly….the listeners… for an unimaginable journey. Today will be my last show ❤️ stay tuned…. Love, Angie”
Everyone thought it was a little fishy when Power 105.1’s Twitter Page Retweeted the announcement with a smiley face, but it all became clear this morning when Clear Channel announced that Angie Martinez would be joining Hot 97’s rival station, Power 105.1 . This was definitely a shocker, but we wish Angie the best of luck in her future endeavors.
