Brooklyn, NY – As part of its mission to present educational programming relevant to the needs of its audience, the Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network – HITN-TV announced today that it will air two programs with special coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, on Sunday, July 24th and Sunday, July 31st.
“The Latino vote will play an important role in this year’s presidential elections and HITN-TV is committed to offering informative programming that will help our Spanish-speaking audience better understand the complex U.S. electoral process,” explained Mike Nieves, President and CEO of HITN.
This latest effort is part of Tu Momento 2016 (Your Moment 2016); an educational campaign the network launched last April to explain the workings of the United States’ electoral system and which has been well received by the Hispanic community.
Gerson Borrero, HITN’s veteran presenter, will host the convention coverage, which will begin on Sunday, July 24th with a detailed summary and analysis of the Republican National Convention and will continue on Sunday, July 31st with a similar recap of the top moments from the Democratic party’s convention.
Both programs will feature commentary about the importance of both conventions and what they mean for the Hispanic community, all presented in the moderate, neutral style that characterizes HITN-TV’s reporting. HITN-TV will continue to cover the electoral process with a variety of live and detailed coverage through election day in November.
“The millions of Hispanics living in the United States need to be well-informed about political realities in this country in their own language,” added Eric Turpin, HITN TV’s General Manager. “HITN-TV has taken on this role and it has a responsibility we take very seriously.”
