(AllHipHop News) People are still attempting to wrap their heads around the fact that Angie Martinez will no longer be on Hot 97. In an interview two days after announcing her resignation on Twitter and Instagram, Angie Martinez explains why she left Hot 97 for its biggest competitor.
Angie Martinez does not start her new show on Power 105.1 and Miami's The Beat until July. However, according to Martinez in an interview with Billboard, her move from the station she's worked at for over 20 years was based on her "growth potential":
The thing is about the move – it's not just going down the dial. It's about joining a team and a company that really offers me all kinds of growth potential.
Martinez says her departure was amicable, but states she "had to take my emotion out of it" when deciding to leave. Her former colleague Cipha Sounds was announced today (June 23rd) as the replacement for her 3 P.M. slot.
