America TeVe WFUN, South Florida Hispanics' Choice for Political News Coverage, delivered an impressive multi-platform live coverage including on-air, online and social media. America TeVe WFUN surpassed Telemundo 51 WSCV (by delivering a 9.7 Rating / 13 Share against WSCV's 9.4 Rating / 12 Share in 8-11PM Hispanic Households) and all other Spanish and English language television stations in the Miami DMA with the exception of Univision 23.
America TeVe's complete news coverage was co-anchored by Oscar Haza and Pedro Sevcec, who together with a team of fourteen journalists and twenty four political analysts, provided in-depth commentary as well as minute by minute information. Experienced journalists Felix Guillermo (10PM news anchor) and Soledad Cedro joined Haza and Sevcec in the studio, providing statistical projections and real-time results of the electoral map and updates on the balance of power in the House and Senate. Additionally, special correspondents reported live from Chicago and Boston, bringing viewers all the emotion and excitement in both Obama and Romney's campaign headquarters in anticipation of their final speeches.
Expert commentary and analysis was provided by Marcelo Llorente, former U.S. Representative for Florida's 116st District, Rudy Fernandez, Mitt Romney's Campaign Advisor, Raul Martinez, former mayor of Hialeah, Maurice Ferre, former mayor of Miami-Dade, Michael Hernanzdez, Obama Campaign Spokesperson, Fred Balsera, democratic analyst (live from Chicago), Alberto Cardenas, former President of the Republican Party in Florida (live from Boston), and Lynnette Acosta, co-president of Obama's National Campaign (Live from Orlando), among others.
Furthermore, as the leading independent Spanish language television station in South Florida, America TeVe fulfilled its commitment to provide the best continuous local coverage with special updates and live coverage from the most crucial voting areas in Florida. A team of six local reporters conducted interviews with: Mario Diaz-Balart, incumbent U.S. Representative for Florida's 21st Congressional District; Joe Garcia, newly elected U.S. Representative for Florida's 26st Congressional District and his republican counterpart David Rivera; Doral's outgoing Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez, Miami- Dade County Commissioner for District 11 Juan Carlos Zapata, Miami-Dade School District Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, and the three candidates for Mayor of City of Doral: Frank Bolanos, Luigi Boria and Pete Cabrera.
"The success of our election night coverage is conclusive evidence of our important role in the local Hispanic community in Miami, who has chosen us as the primary source of national and local information. We are proud to be the only independent television station in the country that is capable of achieving this kind of success against network supported television stations in a major market such as Miami," said Omar Romay, president of America TeVe.
