Honey, I'm Home: A Crazed Fan Goes Above and Beyond for 'Wife' Angie Martinez

The radio persona gets an unwanted visit from stalker.

Published September 14, 2015

One might assume that as a radio personality you could avoid stalker fans since your face isn’t plastered all over the world. But if you're one of the most revered radio personas of the last two decades, that may not be the case.

Just ask Angie Martinez.

The iconic NY radio show host, aka "The Voice of New York," recently dodged a crazy fan that traveled from California just to see her, says police.

Martinez, who has interviewed everyone from hip hop legends Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls to President Obama has found herself in a bit of a situation with a recent fan who took his adoration to another level.

According to The New York Daily News, police say 53-year-old Emanuelito Torres-Delgado showed up at the Sixth Avenue iHeart Radio building which houses Power 105.1 (where Angie works), demanding to speak with her. 

After requesting him to leave, Delgado returned more “aggressively,” this time asking to speak to his “wife.”

Authorities claim Delgado’s stalking started a year ago when he began tweeting erotic photos to her and a few other high-profile celebrities online. 

On September 3, he posted a photo of his confirmation for a flight to NY with the Twitter name “Angie come get me boo.” Soon after, he tweeted “5hrs till taxi,” further alarming Martinez of his travels.

Police apprehended Delgado, who has since been arraigned on misdemeanor charges of stalking, trespassing and harassment. Currently he’s being held in the Manhattan Detention Complex with a $5,000 bail.
