Univision and GLR, readying for the Conventions and Presidential Elections

Hispanic media properties are gearing up to cover the upcoming Republican and Democratic Conventions and the electoral process that will culminate in the November elections.

PRISA Radio will bring in-depth coverage of the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions to its listeners in the USA, Latin America and Spain, starting Monday August 27th.

 A team of journalists – including Juan Pablo Salas, Luis Betancourt and Natalia Gomez - will travel to Tampa, FL and Charlotte, NC to bring detailed coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions from August 27th to the 30th and from September 3rd to the 6th respectively. 

PRISA Radio’s coverage will be available through:  

  • Minuto 60 - top of the hour newscast service, syndicated across the USA by GLR Networks, the company’s content production and distribution arm. 
  • The company’s stations WSUA/Radio Caracol in Miami and XEWW/W Radio in Los Angeles and San Diego, which will include periodic reports within their regular programing as well as special dedicated shows. 
  • PRISA Radio’s stations in Latin America and Spain, including Radio Caracol in Colombia, W Radio in Mexico, Radio Continental in Argentina, ADN in Chile and Costa Rica, Radio Panama in Panama and Cadena SER in Spain.

Univision YouTube Partnership

Univision News, a division of Univision Communications Inc., announced that it has teamed up with YouTube to provide coverage of the upcoming Democratic and Republican conventions and U.S. Presidential Election via the YouTube Elections Hub. Coverage begins today and runs through Election Day, November 6, and will feature exclusive reporting and analysis from the award-winning Univision News team.

The YouTube Elections Hub (youtube.com/politics) is a one-stop channel for key political moments through Election Day.  It will feature speeches from the floor of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, Google+ Hangouts with power brokers behind the scenes and other must-watch moments live. Univision News is one of eight news organizations – and the only Spanish-language media company – to be working with YouTube on this initiative. It will be providing election-related video clips, live streamed broadcasts and more throughout the election cycle.  “This initiative enhances our mission to inform our audience, providing viewers with breaking news and culturally-relevant analysis of the world’s top stories, across as many media platforms as possible,” said Isaac Lee, president of Univision News. “With a recent Pew study showing that YouTube is a major source of news video, we feel the YouTube Elections Hub will provide a valuable service to voters. And with Univision News on board, it will be able to reach those who crave political information produced with Hispanics in mind.”
