LOS ANGELES (AP) — Spanish-language radio host Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo is getting his own channel on SiriusXM, three weeks after Univision canceled his long-running show amid sexual harassment allegations.

The satellite service announced Tuesday that it will launch a channel called "Piolin Radio" later this year. Sotelo will anchor it with a four-hour morning call-in program from Los Angeles.

Piolin, whose nickname means "Tweety Bird," says in the statement that he "can't wait to fly free" and to be available coast to coast.

After a decade on the air, Univision abruptly canceled Sotelo's radio show last month after a Univision employee alleged that Sotelo had sexually harassed him. Sotelo has denied the allegation.
