Considered one of the city’s most familiar voices on the radio, she had been with the hip hop station since 1996.
Angie told fans she quit via Instagram:
“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”
She shared that message with this photo:
Until today, The Angie Martínez show aired Monday to Friday from 3 to 7 pm ET.
She didn’t say what what she’ll do next, but rival station Power 105.1 retweeted her resignation, prompting rumors that she’ll be switching stations.
