Telemundo news anchor José Díaz Balart will moderate tonight’s MSNBC and Telemundo Democratic Town Hall in Las Vegas with NBC News’ Chuck Todd.
Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders square off in the Nevada State Democratic Party sponsored event, which will take place from 9-11 p.m. ET / 6-8 p.m. PT.
The town hall will air live on MSNBC and stream live online at MSNBC.com and NBCNews.com. Telemundo will air the Spanish-language version live on the West Coast from 6-8 p.m. PT, and in all other zones from 12 a.m.-2 a.m. ET, from 11 p.m.-1 a.m. CT and from 10 p.m.-12 a.m. MT. It will also stream live online at Telemundo.com and the Telemundo News App.
The moderator spot gives José, who currently anchors “Noticiero Telemundo,” Saturday editions of “NBC Nightly News,” and hosts his own show on MSNBC, added visibility during this election cycle.
Next Thursday, Telemundo anchor María Celeste Arrarás will also get a chance to participate in the process. She’ll take part in the Telemundo-hosted Republican debate as a member of the debate panel.
