After 17 years, I'm leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from "it¹s complicated" to "single". It¹s been an amazing ride - from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie¹s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it's going to be huge.
The reason for the longtime DJ’s exit has not been divulged. The station also released an official statement regarding Cipha Sounds: “Effective immediately, Cipha Sounds is no longer with WQHT HOT 97 FM,” it read.
