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 led by veteran anchor Gonzalo Alvarado (@gonzalochalo73) and include reports from Marina Marraco (@marinamarraco), Lorena Inclán (@lorena_inc), Natalie Perez and Ana Pereira. 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."

Throughout both events, Entravision's correspondents will be actively using social media to update audiences in real-times on the activities from the convention floor. Follow correspondents on Twitter and check out the Facebook pages for WVEA-TV Tampa and Noticias Univision Florida Central for the most up-to-date information from the RNC and DNC.

And, in advance of the DNC next week, the show will also include an interview with the Chairman of the Democratic National Convention and current Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa. During the interview, Villaraigosa will offer his outlook on the Republican meetings in Tampa, along with a preview of what to expect from his party's upcoming convention.
