For the past month, a big, national radio star has been missing from the airwaves.

The El Mandril Show, hosted by Ricardo "El Mandril" Sanche and heard in dozens of cities around the country. His show was so popular in L.A. that he was number one, beating big names such as Rush Limbaugh and Ryan Seacrest.

It's an amazing journey for the radio host who, just last April, was 7th in the ratings. But since last month, he's been off the air in L.A. and a few other cities. Exactly why is something of a mystery.

We're joined by Veronica Villafane, editor and publisher of Media Moves, to find out what this means for Spanish-speaking listeners.
