Angie Martinez, affectionately called "The Voice of New York," has been an integral part of hip hop and music culture -- boasting a broadcast career of more than 20 years. It's only right there's a day dedicated to celebrating her mark in the Big Apple.
The mayor referred to Martinez as an "icon" in his speech, captured by Power 105.1.
"She has really become an icon, a virtuous icon," he said at the press conference. "An icon that makes people very proud. Makes us proud as New Yorkers, makes the entire Latino community proud and particularly makes the Puerto Rican community proud."
