New York’s voice of hip hop is going off the air.
DJ Angie Martinez announced on her instagram page, Wednesday she has resigned from Hot 97:
“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”
The radio station thanked Martinez for more than 20 years of service.
“She exemplified professionalism and passion for music. We thank her deeply for her commitment to hip hop, radio, and broadcasting.”
Rumors are already claiming that Angie is going to work at Power 105, Hot 97’s competitor.
