Los Angeles, CA -As of Thursday, Eddie Sotelo, 43, aka, "El Piolin de la Mañana," a former popular Spanish speaking radio host at Univision has yet to publicly admit that he is gay and attracted to men. Despite, the latest allegations that he sexually and physically harassed a co-worker for the last three years as other co-workers witnessed his gay behavior, according to the L.A. Times. The L.A. Times reported that Alberto "Beto" Cortez, a producer and writer for Sotelo's, El Piolin de la Mañana show through a lawyer sent a letter on April 16, to two Univision executives detailing and exposing Sotelo's sexual harassment.
Cortez says, Sotelo had grabbed his groin and called him names pertaining to gay references. The sexual harassment continued for three years, despite Univision knowing about it and doing absolutely nothing to end the harassment by Sotelo.
Sotelo' attorney claims, Cortez is lying and attempting to extort El Piolin, but Univision found just cause to terminate Sotelo's contract and took El Piolin off the air from 50 syndicated Spanish language radio stations around the country.
El Piolin on his personal account has not tweeted since July 20 and is keeping his termination from Univision private. Sotelo last week released a combine brief statement with Univision admitting he was no longer with Univision after news of his alleged sexual harassment scandal broke.
He was taken off the air on July 22, according to Jose Valle, President of Univision Radio, Inc., one of the executives that received Cortez's letter.
