VIDEO: Angie Martinez Explains Move To Rival Radio Station

Angie Martinez publicly made her first response as to why she left Hot 97 after 15 years for rival station Power 105.1 and sister company Miami's The Beat 103.5 last week. In the interview with her new colleagues The Breakfast Club Angie speaks on her decision and why it was best for her family as well as why she's not disloyal.

"It's business and people leave jobs all the time. I'm not disloyal at all. I have always been extremely loyal. I put -I don't know how many years of my life- down for that company. Even the highest of higher ups –which is when I went to make the phone call when I decided to take this amazing offer that I got. They said [executives] you’ve served this company so well [and for] so many years, I can do nothing but wish you well.
“It was no –how dare you? Why would you leave us? There was not –it was emotional and sad, Angie Martinez continued. “But nobody was angry. Nobody felt like I was doing the wrong thing. Everyone said this is the right thing for you to do for your career and your life.”

I'm totally surprised that Angie was offered an American Idol judging gig and turned it down...
