Behind the scenes, Karlie Hustle was the go-to girl at Hot 97. She was the music director and an essential part in why Hot 97 is the leading hip hop radio station in the country. But, the past few years have not been easy for Hot 97, as Power 105.1 gained a lot of traction, landing several former Hot 97 personalities.
Angie Martinez is the most-recent Hot 97 host to leave for Power 105.1. This move followed both DJ Clue and DJ Envy, who moved several years ago and found success with “the other station.” Regardless of where the people are going, them leaving Hot 97 has the world questioning what’s going on.
Karlie Hustle has held Hot 97 down, but for the last time – at least for now. Earlier this afternoon, Karlie Hustle announced via Instagram that she was leaving Hot 97, thanking Ebro and her staff for three years of good work. She also made it clear she was not leaving for a rival New York radio station.
