New York radio listeners were shocked when Angie Martinez announced she would be leaving Hot 97, last month. Making the announcement via Twitter, fans speculated that she would be headed to Power 105.1. These rumors heightened when her tweet was re-tweeted by Charlamagne Tha God.
Before the week was over, Angie Martinez officially announced she was the newest member of Power 105.1 and Clear Channel. When Angie Martinez went on “The Breakfast Club,” she revealed why she made the move. While still having love for her family at Hot 97, Angie Martinez wanted to expand with a syndicated show.
Typically, what comes with bigger exposure is bigger money. Rumor has it, there is much more money on the table for Angie Martinez at Power 105. This rumor has the number up to as much as twice as much as her Hot 97 salary was over the past few years.
