Univision Cancels Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo’s Morning Radio Show
Jon | On 22, Jul 2013
Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo’s popular syndicated radio show, “Piolín por la Mañana” has been canceled. The show had been on the air since 2003.
The cancellation was confirmed by Univision, but no reason was given, according to multiple media reports. Affiliates were notified Monday afternoon that the popular radio show was pulled off the air and will be replaced by music until further notice.
“Piolín por la Mañana” aired Monday-Friday from 5 to 10 am PT on more than 50 Univision and non-Univision affiliate radio stations. His show was also streamed online.
Sotelo’s popular “Piolín por la Mañana,” reached 3.5 million people each morning. In addition to music and entertainment, Sotelo was passionate about other issues including immigration.
Radio promos have been pulled and so have any mentions of his show on the Univision Radio website.
There is speculation that the cancellation of Piolín’s show might be contract-related, according to the website MediaMoves.com.
