Angie Martinez took to Twitter and Instagram to announce her departure from Hip Hop and New York’s iconic radio station, 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,” Angela wrote. “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”
Angie’s contributions to Hip Hop and Hip Hop culture are too many to name. If Angela leaves the Hip Hop industry and not just Hot 97, she will be dearly missed.
