YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 7/26), ALL ACCESS reported that EDDIE "PIOLIN" SOTELO was suddenly removed from UNIVISION without notice. Rumors are flying that the reason was PIOLIN was building out his own facility with plans for self-syndication. UNIVISION found out, and pulled the trigger.
Now, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS reports that UNIVISION RADIO released a statement saying SOTELO, "had agreed to leave the network after a decade-long run that won him national fame."
UNIVISION wasn't specific beyond saying SOTELO's final show was on MONDAY, JULY 22nd. The program was syndicated nationally to more than 50 stations.
The AP notes, "SOTELO, who was recently elected to THE NATIONAL RADIO HALL OF FAME, said in the UNIVISION statement that he had a great run on UNIVISION."
