NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Angie Martinez, a longtime host on Hip-Hop radio station HOT 97, has left the station for rival Power 105.1. The popular radio personality abruptly resigned on Wednesday.

“This was one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make, but ultimately it is time to move on, to grow and to be challenged in new ways. Saying goodbye is always emotional and bittersweet but I am extremely excited about the future. Today will be my last show," said Martinez via Instagram.

HOT 97 Assistant Program Director Ebro Darden issued a statement on Thursday wishing Martinez well:

"Angie has given over 20 years of service to the HOT 97 brand, where she exemplified professionalism and passion for music. We thank her deeply for her commitment to Hip Hop, radio, and broadcasting."

The 43-year-old mother will be back on the airwaves during the afternoon drive on 105.1 beginning in mid-July.
