Angie Martinez Joins Power 105

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 9.34.39 AMWell that was quick. One day after abruptly leaving Hot 97, Angie Martinez is joining its rival, Power 105. Martinez, who had been with the Hot 97 family for over 20 years, will now be the voice of Power 105 weekdays from 2 pm to 6 pm.

“Angie has a long, successful history and we look forward to expanding her distinctive style and compelling content to more of our listeners,” said Thea Mitchem, Clear Channel’s senior VP of programming for major markets, said in a statement.

Given that Martinez’s departure happened so quickly and she joined Hot 97′s rival, we can’t help but wonder what happened. It’s sort of unbelievable. Was it all about the benjamins? Perhaps, as your career goes on, you do need to get money. No matter what the reason, it ain’t hard to tell that this hurts Hot 97. Will it be be down, but also out? Okay, we’ll stop.
