Hot 97 is losing another cornerstone.
For the last decade, we've listened to Miss Info give us the latest news in celebrity and music gossip, but she will soon silence her mic at the NYC radio station to focus on growth in other areas of life.
Earlier today, Billboard released the exclusive details of her departure with the following:
After 10 years with New York's respected hip-hop station Hot 97, Miss Info (born Minya Oh) has announced she will be leaving the station. Miss Info will be focusing on her website, MissInfo.tv, and a book on parenting.
"2015 has been such an incredible year so far," Info says in a statement. "With a new baby, upcoming site relaunch, and a book on the way, it feels like everything is on the changing table. This wasn’t an easy decision, as I’ve shared so many unforgettable moments with my Hot 97 family. I want to thank everyone from the jocks and creatives to sales and promotions, for their immeasurable support both on and off air."
As Miss Info's colleague Karlie Hustle told the New York Times in February in a story about the station's uphill battle to maintain rap primacy in the city: "The station must evolve and change with the times.” Miss Info seems to be taking that advice — much like her colleague Ebro Darden, who is a keystone on Apple's lauded Beats 1 internet radio station in addition to his regular duties at Hot 97.
Thank you for inspiring a generation of budding journos, Miss Info. We can't wait to see what your future holds!
