Eddie "Piolín" Sotelo, is a Mexican radio broadcaster. He is currently host of the nationally syndicated radio show El Show De Piolin on Entravision[1]. His nickname means "Tweety Bird" in Mexican Spanish, a nickname he acquired as a child. Fans of his and his cast also call him “paupuchon” which means big daddy.[2]

Early Life[edit]

Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo was born in Ocotlán, Jalisco on December 1, 1972. He crossed the border to the United States when he was 16 years old.[3]

Career[edit]

In 2003, Piolin became host of Piolin Por La Manana. The morning radio show was broadcast entirely in Spanish for a Spanish speaking audience and was nationally syndicated to 50 markets.[4] In 2006, the Los Angeles Times ranked Sotelo among the 100 most powerful people in Southern California.[5]

Piolin was removed from Univision Radio on July 22, 2013[6] after the Los Angeles Times reported allegations of sexual harassment[7], claims that Sotelo denied.[8]

SiriusXM launched “Piolin” Radio in 2013[9], and in 2014 he launched his current show El Show de Piolin on 40 radio stations.[10][11]

Polin was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2013.[12]
