Angie Martinez doubles up her cash flow in her move to Power 105.1.
Angie Martinez's move from Hot 97 to station rival Power 105.1 was a bold move that came under fire from many of the radio personality's biggest fans. Now, her motives have been made all the more clear.Â
According to a report by Page Six, Martinez will be taking an enormous pay raise for her transfer--double her previous salary to be more precise.Â Sources tell Page Six that Clear Channel, which owns Power 105.1, offered Martinez pay in the âhigh six figuresâ to come work for them. Martinez, who was a co-host of Hot 97âs âAfternoon Driveâ broadcast with DJ Enuff, will now be hosting two four-hour shows in New York and Miami (Martinezâs rep had no comment).
Martinez previouslyÂ told The Breakfast ClubÂ her new job opportunity was about growth and new experiences, explaining: "It was time for me to grow and to do things... Iâm sure you all know, this company offers so much opportunity for growth. I want to be on in different cities. I want to be able to grow. I want to be able to have new challenges and see new things. I want to know how this studio works. And it was time. Iâve done what I can do in that company. I think my friendships remain."
Angie Martinez's first show on Power 105.1 is slated to air on the second or third week of July whileÂ Cipha SoundsÂ has been bumped up to Angie's slot at her former place of employment.Â
