PIOLIN RADIO is no more at SIRIUSXM RADIO, as the LOS ANGELES TIMES reports that EDDIE "PIOLIN" SOTELO and the satellite service say they've mutually agreed to end their partnership for SOTELO's Spanish-language morning show that repeated all day on its own channel.
SOTELO joined SIRIUSXM in OCTOBER three months after his exit from UNIVISION RADIO that was clouded by legal actions with accusations of harassment by employees and a lawsuit by SOTELO that was dismissed with the host ordered to pay the defendants' legal fees. Calling the SIRIUSXM run a "great experience," SOTELO, in a statement, added, "I will continue my work as an advocate for immigration reform and my community involvement as I consider how to best use the variety of available new technologies to connect with my listeners."
