"Radio icon Angie Martinez is "The Voice of New York." Now that voice speaks out about her experiences at the helm of the #1 radio show in the country and her unlikely path to the heart of hip-hop music. In her twenty years behind the mic at New York City's two biggest hip-hop stations--Hot 97 and Power 105.1--Angie Martinez has become an entertainment legend. From one-time presidential hopeful Barack Obama to Jay-Z and Beyonce to post-prison Tupac, her intimate and candid interviews with the leading names in the music business, hip-hop culture, and beyond have grabbed headlines and changed the conversation. In the same no-holds-barred style of her radio show, Angie shares stories from behind-the-scenes of her most controversial interviews and reflects on her climb to the top of the radio business. And for the first time, Angie opens up about her personal life, exploring how her experiences have shaped her into the strong and outspoken woman that she is today. The Power of a Voice brings together New York City's one-of-a-kind urban radio culture, the changing faces of hip-hop music, and Angie Martinez's rise to become the Voice of New York"-- Provided by publisher.

I've been a true die hard listener of Hot 97 Angie Martinez show from day 1.I remember listening to it at my desk at work at 3 o'clock and the saying Damn it's 5, I got to check out of work. But I'm gonna miss the remaining couple of hours of the show b/c I had to get on the train. She was so funny then and now. I really enjoyed this book. She definitely let the viewers she her true side. Thanks for keeping it REAL Angie! Good Job!
