Yesterday (June 18), hip hop radio legend Angie Martinez made the decision to part ways from her beloved radio crew. Angie has been with the Hot 97 family since she was 16-years-old working her way up from an intern to hosting her own show and branding her name. The media mogul is moving on to greater things as she continues her journalistic journey to further success.
Yesterday she tweeted that she was resigning from Hot 97, and shortly after Power 105.1 retweeted her comment with a smiley face, sparking rumors that Martinez signed with Power 105.1. Today, we have confirmation that Angie inked a new deal with Clear Channel Media agreeing to host Power 105.1 in NYC and 103.5 in Miami. She’s proud to say that she’ll be expanding her brand in more ways than before. The hip hop radio diva will certainly be missed at the Hot 97 station.
