ICYMI- Pioneer & Popular DJ Host Angie Martinez has LEFT Hot 97!

The hip-hop world was shocked by the news that Angie Martinez, known as “The Voice of New York,” resigned from New York’s Hot 97, one of the most fabled radio stations in hip hop history. Widely regarded as one of hip hop’s prevailing kingmakers — she’s interviewed just about every hip hop star there is in the past 20 years — Martinez spent the better part of 25 years with the radio station. She announced the move Wednesday in an Instagram post.

In the caption, she wrote:
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

WOW! That was quick. I've always liked Angie Marr, although I have never had the opportunity to meet her she always gave the vibe of realness and fairness. As a woman in the media broadcasting world, I definitely consider her a pioneer., I remember her from wayyyy back, I think she was actually on KISS f.m.?, talk about memories.

One memory is the drama that went down between her and than shock jock Wendy Williams (the two were station mates), rumors of blows having been thrown between the two over Wendy's big mouth spreading gossip and lies about Angie LIVE on Air! I remember meeting Wendy and had a chat where I asked her directly was that the reason she was fired, and she told me, No, it was because of Sean Puffy Combs and Wendy's notorious "Who's the Gay rapper?" segment she did. Who knows..Anywhooo,

Word is Angie Mar is headed to rival radio station Power 105.1! Ain't that about a MESS!

Check out the LAST SHOW!!!
