When it comes to a pioneer of voices on the radio, Angie Martinez made sure to claim the throne as she became known for many interviews with major artists such as Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Pharrell and more and became known as the “Voice Of New York”.
Today, after 15 years with the radio station Hot97, she let everyone know via Instagram that today will be her last with the radio station as she put in her resignation.
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
Even with not being from New York, I think it will truly take a while before New York radio is the same without her.
But it is partly being speculated that Angie may be going somewhere else as this was tweeted right after:
😊 “@angiemartinez: Today I resigned from HOT97.
But I guess we’re going to have to wait and see…
