Angie Martinez Resigns From Hot 97 And Heads To Power 105.1

Angie Martinez Resigns From Hot 97 And Heads To Power 105.1


    Yesterday the net was buzzing after radio legend Angie Martinez shared the news of her resignation from Hot 97 radio station after 15 years on the air. I was completely shocked. Angie Martinez is a female radio personality that I admire. So when I heard she was leaving I thought it was going to be for a different calling…lol..ummm nope!! I guess its no longer about being HOT.Its about making POWER moves. Get into the story below.

    It looks like Angie Martinez — “The Voice of New York,” as even President Obama calls her — isn’t going too far after all.

    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.

    Martinez announced her resignation on-air Wednesday, and that was followed by an Instagram post saying goodbye. The outpouring of reactions was immediate, with colleagues and artists like Q-Tip paying their respects.

    “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 farewell post. “Saying goodbye is always emotional and bitter sweet but I am extremely excited about the future.”


    Hopefully her next move is the best move.

    August 2011 I launched Addicted2Candi.com with full force. I was excited to post, I was eager to see my traffic numbers weekly. All this occurred before social media took off. Then Instagram arrived and everybody and their mother wanted to be a "Blogger."
    When I first started I was totally against being called a blogger, because at the time bloggers were messy and posted negative gossip. That was never my thing. I am more of the Fashion x Music served with lite tea site. As Instagram popularity continued to grow I was more focused on posting daily there than on my site. I worked hard to achieve a following even though most of my followers just looked and never liked....lol. On August 11th, 2017 Instagram deleted my page for the second time. It happened in 2013 and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally hurt by the action especially since I am unsure why it was deleted.
    So I have decided to refocus my energy on my merchandise TheAddictedLife I'll continue to blog here and there but I'm bigger than just being a "Blogger." Branding Addicted2Candi is so much more than that. So maybe the universe is telling me to reroute to fulfill my dreams. For anyone that enjoyed my few podcast shows, I am releasing a new podcast this month. I have so much in store for myself and all of my supporters.
    Ladies please be sure to cop your Dope Chick With Ambition T- Shirt via wwww.TheAddicted.Life.com. My goal is to be a millionaire in this lifetime and that's what I am going to achieve. Don't ever give up on your dreams. But when necessary reroute and attempt to achieve your goals another way. And remember
    "Real ones may fall back but they never fall off!"
    Be sure to follow my merchandise page @ShopTheAddictedLife and Personal Page @Addicted2Candi on the gram.
