The Power of Angie Martinez


The New York Daily News writes up a nice profile on Martinez, highlighting how important she is to the New York City Hip Hop scene. Martinez has a new book out called My Voice. A big part of the News story is the revelation that, in 2012, Martinez decided to jump from Emmis’ Hot 97, where she’d been for two decades as “The Voice of New York,” to work for iHeartMedia’s Power 105.1, about which the News reports: “her roster of celebrity fans flew into a frenzy.” Martinez, now approaching 50, started out as an intern at Hot 97 at age 18.
