After 15 years at one of Hip Hop’s most prominent stations, Angie Martinez announced that she’s resigning from the radio station today. Angie took to her official Instagram account to share the unexpected news, thanking Emmis Communications and the Hot 97 staff.

she shared the above photo with the caption:

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

Angie began her career at Hot 97 as an Intern in 1987, before joining Funkmaster Flex on air in the early 90’s. No telling what’s next for The Voice of New York, but Twitter is already reacting.
