Univision Radio says Spanish-language talk show host Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo agreed to leave the network after a decade-long run that won him national fame.
Univision said in a statement Thursday that Sotelo broadcast his final show Monday.

The statement comes after Sotelo was abruptly removed from the air, shocking loyal listeners of the Mexican-born disc jockey known for helping propel immigrant supporters into the streets in 2006 to protest against an anti-illegal immigration bill.
The program was syndicated nationally on more than 50 stations. No reason was given for the decision.
Sotelo says in the statement that he had a great run on Univision. A message was left for Sotelo's manager Rudy Franco.
