In just about any business, money talks. Such is the case with Angie Martinez, who allegedly was blessed with a doubled salary after leaving Hot 97 for arch rival Power 105.1.

Reports Page Six:

Music insiders are buzzing that when popular disc jockey Angie Martinez jumped ship to Power 105. 1 two weeks ago, after 15 years at Hot 97, she doubled her pay.

Sources tell Page Six that Clear Channel, which owns Power 105.1, offered Martinez a figure in the “high six figures.” Martinez, who was a co-host of Hot 97’s “Afternoon Drive” broadcast with DJ Enuff, will be hosting two four-hour shows in New York and Miami (Martinez’s rep had no comment).

High six figures? Considering her track record and influence, Martinez should have taken nothing less.
