Jimmy Fallon talks new fatherhood
NEW YORK — It wasn’t quite a royal proclamation, but Jimmy Fallon shared the name of his family’s new addition: Winnie Rose.
Fallon joked in his “Late Night” monologue this week that he hasn’t had a chance to respond to everyone’s messages, “but let me just say — Yes, William and Kate, we’ll definitely set up a play date.”
Fallon and his film-producer wife, Nancy Juvonen Fallon, welcomed their daughter Tuesday morning.
The 38-year-old Fallon takes over NBC’s “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno next year after hosting “Late Night” since 2009.
Fallon thanked fans for their support on social networks and joked about chasing people down to show them pictures of his baby: “Now I understand why people are on Facebook. I get it now, I get it.”
Univision says ‘Piolin’ agreed to leave show
LOS ANGELES — 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 recently that Sotelo broadcast his final show Monday. The program was syndicated nationally on more than 50 stations.
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.
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.
