“Today will be my last show…

Angie Martinez sent shock waves across the industry, yesterday — after abruptly announcing her resignation from HOT 97, a spot that’s been her home away from home for more than 15-years.

“It’s sad, but it’s also exciting,” the 41-year-old said during her final show on air on Wednesday afternoon. “There’s been things that I’ve wanted to do for quite some time. I have opportunities that I want to pursue.

The Nuyorican ‘Voice of New York’ also used social media to drop the bomb.The question now remains: What led Angie to decided to throw deuces up to HOT 97… and sign on with the station’s rival radio station?

“Clear Channel confirmed that Angie would join Power 105.1 in New York and 103.5 The Beat in Miami.”

Here’s what Angie released to IG:

“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”

“Martinez will be replacing Power 105’s DJ Prostyle on weekday afternoons and in turn, Prostyle will be hosting weekday mornings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.”

HOT 97 released this statement over Angie’s departure:

“She exemplified professionalism and passion for music. We thank her deeply for her commitment to hip hop, radio, and broadcasting.”

  1. I used to work on 103.5 the Beat years ago, before the station was replaced by Spanish station… and basically they’re repeating the same formula that caused the stations demise: syndicating shows from NYC and filling the staff with mostly NYers and Nuyoricans.
    Which irritates a lot of local listeners and talent, b/c sometimes it’s hard to relate to NY mentality and they constantly go-on- and on about how NY is the best place.

    Angie is good talent though and maybe she can reverse the last outcome. I wish her the best.

    But it would be nice if Clear Channel starts hiring more local talent and stop being cheap, particularly with black hip-hop/r&b stations.

    • This seems to be a global problem with Clear Channel. Also just check out their stations across the country with primarily black listeners they are under funded in many ways! CLear Channel does not invest as much into its black stations

  2. Angie should have left a long time ago. She got an offer from american idol years ago and turned it down. She could have been a household name. Look at Wendy she has her own tv show and other stuff in the works.

  3. Clear Channel is part of the problem, as it relates to urban radio. In other words, they loop the same songs day and night. I listened to 103.5 here in Miami at the start, since it came back on air…No! This is a money grab, more or less.

    • clear channel is the problem they own everything then lump every radio station together, and then become very cheap! this happens to talk radio all the time! she probably wants to get a lot more money because she’s been hosting for a very long time this is all so what’s been happening in radio, the host that have been doing it for years they wanna make bank and I don’t blame them. Does anybody know what happened home girl’s face? She’s trying to hide that scar but that’s pretty deep

      • Yep! It’s about the money ya’ll. This is not about elevating the culture. The scar is so obvious, hard to miss it.

  4. This old bag was still working in radio? I thought Angie Martinez was cleaning Oprah Winfrey’s toilets for a living? Who knew!

  5. congratulations to angie i love her but man when she was young her body was banging with those boobs aka watermelons. word is she caries 38DD bra

  6. I like Angie!! Glad to see her doing better then her crackhead baby daddy Nokio! Never understand how he got Angie but then again witchcraft is a mutha just ask nokio former band mate who said nokio is an occult expert…
