Radio host Angie Martinez ends her Hot 97 career at the age of 43 to start a new chapter in her life. She started at Hot 97 at the age of 18, running around as a youngin’ on the street team. It gets emotional at the radio station as people say their farewell’s to the legend.
Angie hasn’t announced what’s next for her, but reminds everyone she will be doing big things once again. The radio hasn’t announced who will take her place or what they will do during the hours of the Angie Martinez Show, but sure they’ll figure it out!
Peace to the legend! Angie had some of the best interviews and best relationships with some of the artists. She was one of the few who could get Jay-Z to open up about his personal life. She’s interviewed, Biggie and Pac. She’s got down to the real of some of the biggest rap beefs.
New York won’t feel the same without her voice on the airwaves. Salute Angie! Wish you nothing, but the best! Good luck on all your future endeavors.
