Piolin To Launch A Channel On Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI)
Come 18 October and Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo will be back on the airwaves. He is all set to launch a new Spanish-language channel on Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI). Universal Radio had scrapped his highly-popular long-standing program in July amidst some sexual harassment complaints that had been lodged by a former employee. This new show is a morning, 4-hour live show that will be broadcast from L.A and will feature discussions about current events, listener call-ins and celebrity interviews.
In a statement, Sotelo said that he is honored that Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI) believes in him and that he is happy that the show will finally be heard from one coast to the other. When Univision showed him the door, it seemed like his downslide had begun but the deal with Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI) might just see him come back into the limelight. Sotelo denied all the sexual harassment complaints and said that he had been victimized.
