As a boycott threatens a GOP presidential debate on Univision, the other major Spanish-language TV network, Telemundo has planned its first-ever GOP primary debate.
Telemundo will produce and broadcast its first ever Republican Presidential debate from Las Vegas in early December. The debate, broadcast in Spanish, will be moderated by Telemundo news anchor José Díaz-Balart and is produced in partnership with NBC News. NBCUniversal owns both NBC and Telemundo. The debate may also be rebroadcast on MSNBC.
Nevada is one of the early primary states and has a population that is 26.5% Hispanic. The national average is 16.3%.
