"We are honored to have the exclusive opportunity to interview President Obama in one of our fastest-growing markets and bring that interview to all the viewers we serve across our multi-media platforms," said Walter Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entravision. "Latino voters are playing a significant role in this year's election, and this opportunity provided our viewers with an in-depth look at the important issues facing our country and the Latino population today. Through our ongoing coverage leading up to November, we hope to inspire the Latino community to vote on Election Day."

"Perspectiva Nacional con Armando Guzman," Entravision's weekly public affairs show, also covered the RNC on its Sunday, September 2 nd broadcast, which included interviews with Hector Barreto, former Administrator of the Small Business Administration and Rosario Marin, former U.S. Treasurer.
