SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC) today announced that the company will be leveraging its extensive broadcast and digital assets, many of which are located in key battleground states, to provide the local Latino communities it serves with complete coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

During this week's Republican National Convention (RNC), Entravision's news teams from WVEA-TV Tampa and WVEN-TV Orlando (@wven), will be on location in Tampa to provide daily updates from the convention floor.

Coverage will be broadcast around the country on Entravision's nightly newscasts. Next week, a team of correspondents will travel to Charlotte, North Carolina for the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

"Our goal is to not only mobilize the Latino community to get out and vote come November, but also to create a more informed voting population who will make the most educated decision," said Walter F. Ulloa, Entravision's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Entravision's enhanced news coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions over the next few weeks will focus on the issues that are most important to our viewers and the markets we serve and ultimately make an impact on Election Day."
