New Yorkers and people all over took a collective gasp when Angie Martinez announced that she was resigning from Hot 97 after twenty years of working at the station. The announcement came out of nowhere! There was no farewell show, no fanfare, no nothing! This leads us to believe that the split was not as amicable as they are trying to make is believe.
Welp! It all made sense the next day when it was announced that Ang was moving over to Hot 97’s nemesis Power 105.1, which is home to the highly successful Breakfast Club Morning Show. In an interview with Billboard Angie states:
The thing is about the move – it’s not just going down the dial. It’s about joining a team and a company that offers me all kinds of growth potential.
Angie says the departure was amicable *side-eye*,but states she had to take her emotion out of the decision to leave. Cipha Sounds was announced today as the replacement over at Hot 97. Angie doesn’t start until July with Power 105.1 and Miami’s The Beat. Not looking too good over at Hot 97, we wish Angie the best!
Whut say you?
