*After shocking New York’s urban radio scene Wednesday with the bombshell announcement she was leaving Hot 97.1 after 15 years on the air, it was revealed today that Angie Martinez is headed to rival station Power 105.1.
Clear Channel made the announcement Thursday morning (June 19), adding that the radio veteran will host a new afternoon show, running from 2 – 6 p.m in New York. Her show will also air on Miami’s 103.5 The Beat.
Martinez announced her resignation on-air Wednesday, and followed it up with an Instagram post bidding farewell.
“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,” she said in her post. “Saying goodbye is always emotional and bitter sweet but I am extremely excited about the future.”
