Eddie Sotelo

Radio personality, Actor
Eddie "Piolín" Sotelo is a Mexican radio personality, born in Ocotlán, Jalisco. His show, "Piolín por la Mañana," ran weekday mornings on KSCA in Southern California. His nickname means "Tweety Bird" in Mexican Spanish, a nickname he acquired as a child. The LA Times ranked Sotelo in 2006 amongst the 100 most powerful people in Southern California. His show, broadcast entirely in Spanish for a Spanish speaking audience, is one of the most popular shows on Los Angeles radio, with a 9.9 rating. The program also became nationally syndicated to 50 markets. In 2005, Sotelo provided immigration rights supporters four hours on his program. Piolin was removed from Univision Radio on July 22nd, 2013 without explanation for the cancellation. Subsequently, the Los Angeles Times reported that Alberto Cortez, a writer, producer, and performer on the show, made allegations of sexual harassment by Sotelo on Cortez. In addition, Cortez alleged that Sotelo forced his staff to forge thousands of letters after a million letter campaign for comprehensive immigration reform came short, which were then presented to a congressional delegation composed of Senators Edward Kennedy, Mel Martinez, Robert Menendez and Arlen Specter, as well as members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Sotelo has responded that those claims were made only for Cortez's personal gain, claimed that Cortez had tried to recruit other employees to make false accusations against Sotelo, and stated his goal to be back on the radio.
