Be still my heart! I seriously never thought I’d see this day…when the legendary heart and voice of NYC would be stepping down from her golden throne at HOT 97! Yep..It’s official..Angie Martinez is calling it quits after over two decades of service! Today was her last show…and I MISSED it! You know, I’m angry..but that’s a another story.
However, I did peep her message over on Instagram and although I’m truly saddened by the news of her departure, I’m super excited for ‘Titi’ Angie. Yessss, ‘Titi’ Angie! As a born and raised Brooklynite, I seriously grew up with Angie on the radio. Shoot..before there was TMZ, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram..there was Angie Martinez…keeping us in the loop and giving us the scoop on everythang! So, although I never really want to see anyone ‘die under the desk’ of any job, I just figured that Angie would always be at Hot 97. Seriously, she IS Hot 97! This woman is a beast at what she does. I’ve been a fan for years and have nothing but respect for her hustle. However, when one door closes another will surely open…
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”
Awww…she will be sorely missed. However, we wish this Nautie girl nothing but success in her future endeavors.
