Angie Martinez Leaves Hot 97 For Power 105
June 19, 2014

On Wednesday, longtime Emmis Rhythmic CHR WQHT (Hot 97)/New York afternoon host Angie Martinez announced she was stepping down from the station. However, this morning Clear Channel Media + Entertainment revealed the reason why - she is joining CCM+E to host afternoon drive on both Urban WWPR (Power 105)/New York and middays on Urban WMIB (103.5 The Beat)/Miami.

"Angie is the Queen of New York City radio ­ she is an incredible talent who continues to blaze trails and we are excited to have her join the team at Power 105.1 and The Beat in Miami," said Thea Mitchem, SVP of Programming ­ Major Markets, CCM+E. "Angie has a long, successful history and we look forward to expanding her distinctive style and compelling content to more of our listeners." 

"I want to thank, Thea Mitchem, Tom Poleman and Doc Wynter for this incredible opportunity," said Martinez.  "Im excited to join Power 105.1 in New York and The Beat in Miami and expand my brand even further in the coming months."

Power 105.1's DJ Prostyle, current weekday afternoon host, will move to middays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

On Wednesday, Martinez posted a statement online to her Twitter and Instagram accounts, as well as announcing on-air, saying that she was leaving Hot 97. She wrote, "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"
