Big industry news today as Hot 97 mainstay and legendary radio host/interviewer Angie Martinez is stepping down today. This news is a shocker to me, and I can only imagine for the avid NYC listeners. Angie posted this photo on IG earlier today with the following explanation. Tune in to catch what she says on the air for the last time.
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
