New York City mayor Bill De Blasio declared November 19 “Angie Martinez Day.”

The event honored the Power 105.1 radio personality for Puerto Rican Heritage Month.

“Whether speaking with legendary Hip Hop artists, popularizing the music that became our city’s daily anthems or consoling the community after the tragic events on September 11th, Angie Martinez has, like the best radio personalities, grown as trusted and familiar to her listeners as a dear friend,” De Blasio says via press release. “I am delighted to applaud the key role she has played in New York and to wish her a terrific next chapter at Power 105.1. We are fortunate to live in a city with such a rich array of voices and cultures and my administration is working to ensure residents from all backgrounds and walks of life can enjoy and contribute to the creative energy of New York.”



Martinez joined Power 105.1 last year after more than two decades with Hot 97.  Jay Z and Tupac are among those she has interviewed.
