The Voice of New York tells all in the latest installment of Elliott Wilson’s “The Truth.” Radio veteran Angie Martinez discussed leaving Hot 97 after a twenty-year tenure to start her new gig at rival station Power 105.1, how her tight-knit friendship with Jay Z began, and her come-up in the radio industry.
“I went from doing overnights, I was on from midnight to six in the morning, and then they moved me. That was a big moment for me,” Angie said. “I had been running Flex’s boards, I was doing overnights, I was going to community college during the day. Then after that I was going to the station. I was literally working 20 hours a day, sleeping four for a long time. Then they gave me the break.”
