Posted By on June 19, 2014

We recently reported on New York’s Hot 97 personality Angie Martinez announcing she will be leaving the station and now reports claim she will be joining Hot 97’s rival, Power 105.1.

According to reports, Angie is set to have her own afternoon show at 105.1.

 “On Thursday morning (June 19), Clear Channel announced that Martinez would be joining the team at rival radio station Power 105. 1, in addition to airing on 103.5 The Beat in Miami. She’s set to host a new afternoon show, running fro 2 – 6 p.m in New York. Power 105 and Hot 97 have been fierce competitors in recent years, so the move is definitely unexpected.” (MTV)

Martinez took to her Instagram account to announce the news Wednesday afternoon (June 18).

 “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” (Angie Martinez’s Instagram)
