Angie Martinez Joins Power 105.1

angie-wale

Hats Off.

The Voice of New York has been silenced. After two decades on air, Angie Martinez resigned today from Hot 97. Before her final broadcast above, she left this message on her Instagram page.

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

On a related note, the Hot 97 Morning Show has been renamed Ebro In The Morning. No, seriously. Find out why at the 1:02:00 mark.

    wtf ???

    No surprise hot97 turning into a joke – Ebro renaming the morning show ebrointheam … Dissing chuck d … 16th in the ratings for viewers in the morning … Sinking ship. Obviously this was contentious because she’s left so abruptly … Probablaly didn’t agree with the rubbish reality tv show and the questionable choices hot97 have made recently.

    • http://www.7themerson.com MannyThoughts

      I thought you were joking when you mentioned EbrointheAM. Just checked it out…………good grief! smh

    • choco-prince

      where do i look up ratings

    • jinsushi

      What questionable choices has hot97 made?

  • http://www.facebook.com/LilMajerTheCartune Cartune

    Hmm.. I wonder will she go on to another station, I actually liked Angie Martinez.

    • Undisputed11

      Power 105.1 maybe? Now that would be something.

      • polopolo1

        Lol looks like u were right, ctfu

  • Dashing28

    This is too abrupt. There’s a story here that we’re not hearing…

    • wow

      And i’m guessing you want to know so can tell all your buddies over brunch…. smh. i hope your a woman.

      • Mike Markidis

        damnnn homie lmao THE ETHER!

      • Dashing28

        Nah. I’m just a guy who grew up in NYC listening to Hot97 everyday (that’s my word). If it was all sweet the station should have given her a real sendoff. Get Jay, Ye, and a bunch of big names to honor her and what she brought to the station and to the culture for almost 20 years.

        Angie and Flex are Hot97. That shit is an institution. She was the best radio personality on the best rap station in the world during the best era of rap on the radio.

        And then she just up and leaves in one day no explanation? I’m not ashamed to admit I wanna know what happened. I think it makes me a real supporter of the culture.

        But it’s a RR comment section so we’re all 7 year olds making gay jokes, I get it…

            Im from Toronto so I didn’t grow up with hot97 as an institution like other people, but this seems like a big deal to me as a hip hop fan, and Im sure theres shenanigans on this one

        • jinsushi

          I respect everything u just said and I agree 100%. These cats act like hot 97 flex and Angie didn’t bring them rocafella freestyles lox nas dipset gunit even ASAP did a flex freestyle. Power105 ain’t never did shit but breakfast club. Rappers go there and they don’t spit freestyles they joke around and gossip with charlamagne and Angela Yee. They good but they not legendary in hiphop.

      • http://ranru.blogspot.com/ ΓΛΝΓV™

        KILL URSELF!

    • SmoothG718

      Maybe what Dame Dash was saying about flex being 46 in the same slot for 20+ years had her thinking

      • KENDRICK_EQUALS_2PAC

  • titus tucker

    Angie gone but Flex still there?

    • cain45

      flex is a legend stop hating old man

      • Bo

        Flex lost legend status years ago.

        • RapReal

          You don’t lose legend status you fucking idiot. I don’t like Flex either, but you’re a fucking idiot.

        • jinsushi

          What radio dj is more legendary than funk flex???

      • Loopay

        Flex is SUPER annoying! Another Thot97 fool that disrespects legends!

  • http://theplan42.tumblr.com Plan42

    There is definitely more to the story than what’s being let on.

    • wow

      you and Dashing28 are moist!

      • BLAQMENCH

        Everything must be Moist, because I too wanna know why Angie just abruptly Resigned!

  • Aye Ebro and Rosenberg are killing hot 97… they too old anyway…. like all the other 35+ reality TV stars… lets get some young blood on the tv/radio waves…. 30 and under…. let us decide where we want hip hop to go

    • jinsushi

      Rosenberg is the only person on NYC radio that actually breaks new artist from NYC and plays real hiphop. WTf r u talkin bout.

  • DaGod

    I wonder if she really is going to Power 105?

  • J_Red

    She’s such a legend

  • EvenOdd

    Some shit went down. Something about resigning and doing her last show within hours of each other is suspect.

  • THE REAL mac DIESEL

    FINALLY!!!! NO MORE OF THOSE CORNY ANNOYING JAY-Z INTERVIEWS!!!! GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • The Rock says

    New York Niggas on twitter was actin like Jeter just played his last game, its just Angie Martinez

    • Lol

      Lmao nah but it’s basically the same

    • GetReal

      lmaoooo thats what im saying i couldn’t stand her nut hugging jay z interviews and I’m a fan of jay lol

      • jinsushi

        Yea but u see she was the one that got the jayz interviews tho. So flex and Angie might dick ride but jay always come thru to them. Jay finally did breakfast club this last yr. so the relationship she has wit jayz is golden in radio. U only as good as who I can work with. That’s why 105 interviews ppl from big stars to YouTube stars, they need the help hot97 is above that

  • el jim chapo guzman

    that’s cold 20 years of work end like this.

  • michaelv

    The season finale for This Is Hot 97 season 2?

  • DA90s

    CYPH SAVE YOURSELF. Follow your comedy because now your part of a wrestling show! SO? WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO WHEN HOT 97 AND THE JEWS BRING THE HAMMER DOWN ON YOU? BROTHER!

    • 4080

      Cypher is the last cat left on there with any hip hop credibility. Flex lost his when he let drake “freestyle” with a cell phone

  • Strong Enough

    she finally took jay-z out her mouth

  • ben

    Damn end of an era Im getting old

  • Billy Kincaid

    ANGIE’S ON POWER 105.1!!

  • teenage millionaire

    Smart move Angie Martinez …..Ebro fucked up HOT 97 …. wow EBRO just lost his best team member to the competition. This is what happens when the PD renames the morning show Ebrointheam and starts to insult Chuck D……

    • Nae

      Ebro is doing way to much. I was listening to Hot 97 the other day, and Ebro was dominating the conversation, and he was “correcting” the other radio personalities when they didn’t agree with him. Hot 97 needs to either give Ebro his own show, or put a muzzle on him. He wants to be famous so badly, but refuses to admit it. The way he and Rosenberg came at Chuck D was straight up disrespectful, and they call themselves “Hip Hop”.

  • Donn

    WHOA!!!

  • EricHeisenberg

    what a power move. she is in the winners circle. Congrats.

      • THE REAL mac DIESEL

        COMIN’ FROMA GUY WHO LIVES IN AN APARTMENT THAT’S THE SIZE OF MY CAR GARAGE!!!!

        …………HA!!!! SHE’S STILL A JUDAS!!!! I’M THINKIN’ PROGRAM DIRECTOR OR SOMETHIN’ MORE OF A CORPORATE POSITION!!!! I GUESS “MOVING ON TO A NEW CHALLENGE” TO HER IS TO GO ACROSS THE STREET FOR MORE MONEY TO BASCIALLY DO THE SAME THING!!!! ENHANCING HER ACCOUNT, BUT NOT HER CLOUT!!!! #BADBUSINESS

        DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

      • TheTruthHurts

        Business shouldn’t have you turn your back on the team you’ve been riding with for years. Quitting is one thing but going to Power is something else entirely. If that’s how you do business B.Dot then that’s some shady shit.

  • @JasonWllms

    i knew something was up. salute to Angie. Power must have came through with an offer of like 250k a year. $$$$ talks…bull shit walks. I feel like Ebro is becoming too much a dominant personality over at Hot 97. 5 years ago i had no idea who he was, now he is like the biggest personality over there (behind FLEX)

    • The Incredible Creation

      shiiiit, the nigga more popular than Flex at this point lol Flex just got some popularity again from that Dame shit and now that’s cooled off… smh

  • DamnItMan

    These hoes ain’t loyal

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      …………..HA!!!!

      DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • TheTruthHurts

    There’s definitely some respect to be had for Angie for her overall career and generally not being a bad person like people like DJ Vlad. That said that’s fucked up for her to switch teams entirely. I understand more money and maybe other reasons but as far as a look for her name, all that can be said is these hoes ain’t loyal.

  • Extra Domus

    jumping ship that quick to the competition is never a good look for your career

    • 412 Center

      Why not?

  • veesky

    Zamn. These hosts ain’t loyal…(sorry, couldn’t resist)

    • 412 Center

      Hosts ain’t loyal? Management ain’t loyal.

      • veesky

  • RDub

    EBRO RUINS EVERYTHING! That radio station should have been in Angie’s name decades ago and it’s going to EBRO. Who’s dick is he sucking? A travesty for HOT97. Power 105.1 will be #1 in NY for sure now.

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Dame made angie flip the switch to power 105.1

  • West West

    In a not growing business like Radio you can’t win only by better shows sometimes you need to buy yourself some market share. That is what clear channel did! Get you a highly known and good working property out of your competitor and then syndicate it like they did with the breakfast club. Angie is known in the urban market of radio around the country not just in NY. Clear channel doesn’t want to pay too many personalities and thats the reason for the syndication of the breakfast club. Same shit about to happen with Angie. And for sure she wanted more money from HOT97 but they can’t match it because it is just NY. But with a syndication you can pay her more but still not as much as if you would pay the dozens of other personalities in the different regions! #Thot97AintBigEnough #ClearChannelPaysMore #SiriusWouldBeTheMoreElegantMove

    • jinsushi

      She coulda stayed at hot97 and did Sirius at the same time. Shit cipha and Angela Yee was on Sirius together b4 power105

  • @SxlxJxnes

    I blame VH1.. if they made me do that bum ass scripted show i would of quit too! Something way bigger here then we know about. Angie is one of the biggest names in radio personalities period. Only time will tell..

    Angies gone, but mister cee still there. lmao.

  • http://www.PhillztheMC.com/ Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    Son. This is so insane but I know Power 105.1 had to have backed up the BRINKS TRUCK to Ang AND she gets a 5 hour slot? SHEESH. Always & still will be the #VoiceOfNEWYORK!

    I have to say that interviews on Hot97 are some of the most poorly conducted conversations I have EVER heard. Personalities like Flex, Ebro and so on love to make the interview more so about them, as evident by the way that they constantly speak over guests and go on LONG rants about THEIR personal beliefs. NO ONE CARES about you dipshit! The last straw was when the vanilla faced man disrespected one of Hip Hops legends. Out ya go Thot97.

  • DariusMrperfect Morgan

    Low ratings!!!..they need new talent….by resigning they let her leave with dignity and smiles…….watch the dominos fall after thisl

  • Rgeezy

    I wouldn’t call moving over to another radio station growing.

  • jinsushi

    No matter what power105 does they will never replace or duplicate what hot97 has done for NYC, for hiphop, for the culture. Some of y’all shit on hot97 and praise power105 like they doing something different. They play the same music. After breakfast club they’re pretty basic. Y’all act like hot97 controls hiphop or something. Hot97 isn’t the reason hiphop is full of ppl u don’t like. U blame the radio when u should blame the fans. They’re the ones that request that crap u don’t wanna hear. And guess what the same crap is on power105. And then at night Rosenberg actually plays real hiphop underground hiphop and breaks new artist. Who does that at power105? Nobody. When something or someone is on top that’s when the hate comes.

  • Markus

    I wonder how long it will take before Hot97 starts slinging mud at their “family member” Angie Martinez for joining the enemy.
