Los Angeles, CA - On Wednesday, Eddie "El Piolín" Sotelo will make his first television network interview with Carmen Dominicci from Telemundo "Al Rojo Vivo." Sotelo's interview will air in the afternoon at 4:00 p.m. Central time. An anticipated Spanish language audience are wondering, if Sotelo will go into depth about a lawsuit filed against him by Alberto "Beto" Cortez for sexual harassment, physical abuse, fraud and causing emotional stress for at least three years while working with Sotelo. Cortez allegations forced Univisión Radio executives in July 22 end a contract with Sotelo from a national syndicated Spanish language radio show. Sotelo worked for Univisión Radio for ten years.
Three weeks after Cortez raised his allegations against Sotelo, six other former co-workers from Univisión sent Sotelo a letter that they would be willing to keep their silence of what went on between them, claiming allegations he sexually harassed, committed fraud and physically abused them during their employment at Univisión. They wanted $4.9 million for not saying anything.
In late August, Sotelo and his lawyers cried foul and filed a lawsuit at a Los Angeles Circuit Court claiming that Tomás Alejandro Fernández, Samuel "Cusuco" Heredia, Domingo Rodrigo Ochoa, Gerardo "Chiquirruco" Palencia, Bertha "Betusha" Velasco and Sergio "Checo" Vera were attempting to scam and extort Sotelo for $4.9 million to keep silent of what went on while working with Sotelo.
Sotelo and his attorneys submitted the letter as prove and evidence of an extortion attempt by the six defendants and their attorneys. 
El Show de Piolín, which is Sotelo's new Spanish language satellite radio show is expected to air on Sirius XM soon, according to Sotelo.
Sotelo says and makes fun that, he is the "ugliest DJ" in the radio.
