Piolin Sotelo Show Returns On SiriusXM Latino Satellite Radio
Eddie 'Piolin' Sotelo, Spanish-language radio's top personality is no stranger to controversy -- with the cancellation of his nationally syndicated morning radio program, “Piolin por la Mañana,” and sexual harassment allegations from his former Univision co-workers, many feathers have been ruffled along the way.
Mexican-born Sotelo was recently featured by People en Español, "where he offered an in-depth conversation about his family and the damage the accusations have had on his personal life," The Huffington Post reported.
“I never mistreated or harassed any of my colleagues,” he said. “And if these were misinterpreted jokes, they never came from me.”
Sotelo, who will launch a new entertainment channel exclusively on SiriusXM Latino, anchored by his own daily, morning-drive show, "El Show de Piolin," is getting amped up for the show's arrival in the coming months.
On Sept. 27, Sotelo posted a picture of his new studio at SiriusXM Latino on his Facebook page, where the center of operations for @Sirius XM Latino will take place, reiterating that fans can listen to him at home, in the car, cell phone, I-pad, computer, work, wherever you go, 24 hours a day, all week.
In earlier press SiriusXM press release, Sotelo said, " I am honored SiriusXM believes in me. As I tell my listeners, 'We came to succeed.' And now, as we step up to a new level, I will be doing that on the biggest radio platform possible. I can't wait to fly free and for the first time be truly available coast-to-coast. I am excited that my listeners will be able to tune in to Piolin Radio at home, in the car or anywhere mobile. I am looking forward to reconnecting with my fans and reaching out to new listeners everywhere across the country."
Piolin will host the live, four-hour call-in show, "El Show de Piolin" where he will discuss the day's events, surprise interviews with celebrity guests, listener call-ins, pranks and music.
Sotelo's past guest have included: President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, comedian George Lopez, actors and artists, Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Vicente Fernandez, as well as top athletes, Oscar de la Hoya and Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
What else is on tap for Sotelo?
He is scheduled to be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in November 2013.
