Only a day after announcing her departure from Emmis’ Urban WQHT-FM (Hot 97 NYC) as afternoon driver, Angie Martinez has moved to CCME for two gigs: Martinez, will join the company to host afternoons on Power 105.1 in New York and Middays on 103.5 The Beat in Miami.
With more than 15 years of on-air experience Martinez is a Hip-Hop radio legend, known as “The Voice of New York.” She has become famous for her world-class interviews with super-star guests including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Derek Jeter, Spike Lee, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo and Justin Bieber. Martinez is also deeply connected with Hip-Hop music and the local community, giving her perspective on the day’s biggest new stories and events.
