LOS ANGELES (AP) — Univision Radio says Spanish-language talk show host Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo agreed to leave the network after a decade-long run that won him national fame.
Univision said in a statement Thursday that Sotelo broadcast his final show Monday. The program was syndicated nationally on more than 50 stations.
The statement comes after Sotelo was abruptly removed from the air, shocking loyal listeners of the Mexican-born disc jockey known for helping propel immigrant supporters into the streets in 2006 to protest against an anti-illegal immigration bill.
No reason was given for the decision.
Sotelo says in the statement that he had a great run on Univision. A message was left for Sotelo's manager Rudy Franco.
