    She’s smart to leave that sinking ship. Rosenberg and Ebro (2 non New Yorkers) are driving that thing straight into a wall.

    • TheEsquireof212

      They already have.

      • B.U.


    • Black Adam

      Dont even know anyone in NYC that still listens to Thot 97. Breakfast club is poppin and thats about it. The rest is trash. If I seen Ebro in the street he could catch this fade. Early!

  • Quintin Williams

    Something doesn’t seem right with this move

  • I_AM_Houston

    In a month or so I bet they make an annoucement that shes about to do some type of real reporting or something for like ABC or Revolt or some shit lol.

    • RightOn

      I don’t know about ABC but I hear you.

    Hope she knows how to type!

    • RightOn

      Lol that’s cold. I actually think she has plenty of opportunities to go do something else and still be successful. At the very least, she can start another mediocre HH blog site like this one.

      • BmoreGirl70

        In this economy, Angie is not immune to the saying, “never quit a job before you have another one”. Hope Cherry Martinez gets her recognition and fills that time slot.

      • 5% Hov

        Screw a job – with her client list she will go mogul…. watch

      • baller187

        ya she dun banged all the top niggas on the dl

      • 5% Hov

        Not even. She paid her dudes without slurpin or burpin

    • TruthSerum

      Please, as well known as she is in the business she could go anywhere in the country and get another show.

  • It’s really over 25 years #respect

  • She should take the Revolt Tv job that rumors are speculating . She do an oprah style program on the network

    • baller187

      revolt is failing i think puffy went in on a bad one with that

      • 5% Hov

        HOW SWAY?

  • diggdoug

    getting off the titanic

  • The_Good_Life

    Pee hole and Rosenberger will probably get axed. Rumor is that chuck d situation reached all the way to the top…

    • TruthSerum

      LOL @ anybody getting axed because of Chuck D, let’s be real, no station is gonna fire one of their on air DJ’s because a guy who’s been complaining about radio since the 80’s told them to.

      • The_Good_Life

        Nah I’m not saying that homie is the cause. But when Mr C vs Tranny nation, Dame calling out flex and add what I previously mention, you can tell that the rumors might hold weight.

  • Move on… grow… and be challenged in new ways…. Flex need to peep that statement. Nigga been in the same slot since Hammer pants were cool

    • bigdoe6

      Real spit my dude. That’s what life is all about.

  • EBE-1

    I think that Dame Dash interview got her. #RealNiggasKnow

    • Da Ledgendary

      which one? the Combat Jack Show interview?

      • Yeah. I was thinking the same thing. Flex is up next, wit his old, dumb ass

      • 5% Hov

        Man f*ck flex. I might actualy listen if he leaves.

      • EBE-1

        That would be the one, When i heard that it even got me thinking about how complacent one can be through out time and not even realize you haven’t moved on to bigger things. You have to stay hungry.

    • The_Good_Life

      I agree. The best way to open a door is to get out the way….

  • A year from now she’ll be on Power 105

    • V C Pittsburgh

      A week from now

  • bigdoe6

    Angie is from the school of Hard Knocks. She probably used to cry when she went home knowing she had to play wack songs from wack artists every single day. She knows the culture is messed up and she wanted to free herself from that situation. Keep ya head up Angie. I wish u success.

  • Eli Pinilla

    The stations garbage anyways. She’ll be running her own shit on satellite

    • V C Pittsburgh

      ahaaha she aint goina be on satellite

      • Jay Smith

        I thought she would be on some internet radio show or create her own. What you think she is going to do? That would be crazy if the went to Hot 97’s rival but I doubt that. Stranger things have happened.

  • V C Pittsburgh

    I think shes going to be on Power 105 and could be in syndication

  • baller187

    obviously she wasnt gettin paid, cuz she would have stayed, and that station been washed up breakfeast club took over long time ago

    • TruthSerum

      How you know she wasn’t being payed, any rumors or something that lead you to that conclusion??

      Because it’s just as logical that she got bored out her mind after working in the same building since 1987…….. Alot of people take early retirement from their jobs every year because they’ve been their so long there sick of it.
