LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC), a diversified media company serving Latino audiences and communities, today announced that legendary radio personality, Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo, will launch a morning show, "El Show de Piolin," on 16 of the company's radio stations beginning on January 5, 2015, as part of a programming and network advertising sales agreement. Considered one of the most successful radio hosts in the history of Spanish-language radio, Piolin previously hosted a successful morning program, "Piolin por la Manana," on select Entravision radio stations between 2006 and January 2012.
"Piolin's return to network radio is nothing short of monumental and we're eager to bring his incredibly popular program to our twelve Tricolor stations, La Nueva in the Rio Grande Valley and Super Estrella in Los Angeles," said Jeffery Liberman, Chief Operating Officer of Entravision. "Building on the success of our wildly popular afternoon program, 'El Show de Erazno y La Chokolata', Piolin is a perfect complement to our current programming lineup. Further, the addition of Piolin will significantly strengthen Entravision Solutions as the premier advertising sales organization for syndicated Spanish-language content nationally. When combined with our fast-growing digital assets and big data resources, we are ideally positioned to maximize the incredible star power that Piolin brings to our multimedia organization."
Entravision Solutions, the company's national sales and marketing arm, will retain the exclusive rights to handle network advertising sales for "El Show de Piolin", which will be syndicated across the country. Entravision Solutions will also have the exclusive right to sell national advertising for all of Entravision stations including those that will broadcast "El Show de Piolin". By adding "El Show de Piolin" to the company's current network syndicated sales lineup of "El Show de Erazno y La Chokolata", "Alex 'El Genio' Lucas", "El Pajarete con Armida y La Flaka", "La Super 20 de State Farm", "De Farra con Lupillo Rivera" and "Super Gol", Entravision Solutions will continue to represent the best in Spanish-language national content.
"I am so excited to be launching 'El Show De Piolin' through my syndication company, Alliance Radio Network. I am also thrilled to be working with Entravision again, not only as the major affiliate group, but also as the sales organization representing all network sales for the program," said Piolin. "The move to air the program on Entravision stations in fourteen markets is the natural next step for me and I can't wait to bring the show to their incredible and dynamic audience. I can't wait to get back in front of my wonderful fans!"
