Angie Martinez, one of the most recognizable voices on the airwaves today, is leaving Hot 97 and taking her talents and legendary 25-plus years of broadcasting experience to New York’s other hip-hop and R&B station, Power 105. We can’t believe it!

The 43-year-old Bronx native made the surprising announcement herself via her Instagram account on June 18.

Alongside a lengthy message (see below), she posted a picture of pair of sunglasses looking out onto a beach, with the following words written over it:

 

“Life Has To Move Forward. Everything Has Its Time And Everything Ends.”

The broadcaster also offered a more in-depth explanation for her abrupt departure, thanking her listeners and her former colleagues and bosses in a very emotional caption.

Angie writes:

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

Aww. Best of luck to Angie on her new gig at Power 105!

Tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers. Will you switch stations to listen to Angie? Let us know!
