Cipha Sounds Leaves New York’s Hot 97

Another one bites the dust and leaves HOT 97 in the wind. Less than 24 hours after comedian and longtime Hot 97 DJ Cipha Sounds made the news for voicing his frustrations with Hot 97, and revealing he turned down offers to work at 105.1, Hot 97 has released an official statement of him no longer being with the station…

The statement was VERY SHORT (and very cold) statement it literally just says: “Effective immediately, Cipha Sounds is no longer with WQHT HOT 97 FM. We wish him well on his future endeavors.”

According to Cipha released a statement of his own:

After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from “it¹s complicated” to “single”. It¹s been an amazing ride – from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie¹s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge.


Sometimes you just have to leave and do what’s best for you, wish him the best…
