Hot 97’s Angie Martinez resigned after over 15 years working for the station. She posted this to her Instagram today
She had worked for the station for more than a decade and a half, starting as an intern when she was a teenager, before eventually becoming an on-air personality. She hosted a weekday show from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Aside from her radio work, “The Voice of New York” has also released two albums, Up Close and Personal, in 2001, and Animal House, the following year. She also appeared on the 1997 hit “Not Tonight” (Ladies Night Remix)” alongside Lil Kim, Missy Elliott, Da Brat and Left Eye.
Earlier this year, Martinez appeared on a “RapFix Live” episode celebrating women in hip-hop.
“I love what I do, and I think for me, that’s probably what’s worked for me,” she said. “I actually try to figure out new ways to do what I do and be inspired. I really love the music; I really love the artists. I love what I do.”
