Entravision Communications Corporation Promotes Mario M. Carrera To Senior Vice President Of Spanish-Language Television

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC) today announced that Mario M. Carrera has been promoted to the newly-created position of Senior Vice President of Spanish-Language Television, overseeing and managing all of Entravision's Spanish-language television properties. Carrera previously led Entravision's radio, television and interactive assets in Colorado as the Vice President and General Manager for 8 years.

"Mario is a proven leader with a deep commitment to the Hispanic community and strong business acumen," said Walter F. Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entravision. "His appointment reflects our efforts to optimize our operating structure in order to better capitalize on our market-leading media properties, which are located in some of the fastest-growing Hispanic markets in the U.S."

"As a seasoned television executive with an extensive track record in one of our fastest-growing clusters, Mario is a perfect fit for this new position," said Philip C. Wilkinson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Entravision. "We look forward to his fresh insights and strategic contributions as we continue to execute on our television growth initiatives."

"I am excited about this new position which provides the ability to work from a holistic perspective with all of Entravision's Spanish-language television teams," said Mario M. Carrera. "The tremendous growth of the U.S. Hispanic consumer market, combined with the unique position of Entravision's television assets, creates a great opportunity to expand our relationships with both the communities we serve and our advertisers."

Carrera has more than 20 years of experience as a general manager and has previously held positions in a number of top Hispanic markets such as Dallas, Texas and Fresno and Bakersfield, California.  Under his tenure in Colorado, Entravision's Noticias Univision Colorado has won 14 Emmy's, in addition to KCEC-TV winning the Best 2010 Public Service Award Campaign from the Colorado Broadcasters Association. Carrera is a graduate of Harvard University. He will continue to be based in Denver, Colorado.

With the U.S. Hispanic population growing at a rate that is six times faster than the non-Hispanic population, Entravision is uniquely positioned to provide Spanish-language entertainment and news to the more than 81.2 million Hispanics that are expected to reside in the U.S. by 2029.
