Legal wrangling between Spanish-language radio star Eduardo “Piolín” Sotelo and six former staff members dialed up this week with new allegations of harrassment and boorish behavior.
The former staffers worked with Sotelo when he hosted his wildly popular “Piolín por la Mañana” program on Univision Radio.
However, the staffers were let go long before Sotelo’s program was abruptly canceled by the Spanish-language media conglomerate on July 22.
Sotelo sued the group of ex-staff members in Los Angeles County Superior Court in late August, alleging they had banded together to try to extort as much as $4.9 million from him. In response, lawyers for the group filed a lengthy motion on Oct. 15, asking a judge to strike Sotelo’s lawsuit.
Friday marked Sotelo’s return to radio with a new four-hour program on SiriusXM called “El Show de Piolín.”
