ABC News, Univision Launch Web Site


Univision and ABC News today launched a co-branded web page, a first step towards launching a full-fledged cable and digital network in the second or third quarter of 2013.

The new English-language web site replaces a Tumblr page that Univision launched several months ago to tap into the growing demographic of English-speaking Latinos.

The launch comes on the day Univision will air its the first of its two "Meet the Candidate" events, a two-part series in which anchors Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos will sit down in separate conversations with Mitt Romney (Sept. 19) and Barack Obama (Sept. 20). The events can be viewed at this Facebook link.

An official announcement is yet to be made, but the site has been populated with fresh news, including a main story written by a Univision staffer about Mitt Romney's now infamous "If I were a Latino" remark.
