SIRIUS XM RADIO is the new home of former UNIVISION star EDDIE "PIOLIN" SOTELO, as the satcaster will launch a new channel anchored by his own daily, morning-drive show, "El Show de PIOLIN."
PIOLIN exited his syndicated UNIVISION morning show JULY 22nd (NET NEWS 7/22), and then dealt with allegations of sexual harassment (NET NEWS 8/5) lodged against him by former co-worker ALBERTO "BETO" CORTEZ
"I am honored SIRIUSXM believes in me," said PIOLIN. 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's fans nationwide are loyal and supportive, and we are thrilled to welcome PIOLIN back to radio," said SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN. "With our growing Latino audience and our national reach, SIRIUSXM's 'PIOLIN RADIO' will truly be coast to coast. PIOLIN will draw subscribers and advertisers alike, and represents our commitment to bring the best and most comprehensive lineup of Spanish-language radio programming to a nation of listeners."
