The companies, which are both owned by NBCUniversal, will combine newsgathering assets and journalists, giving Telemundo access to NBC News' political content and giving NBC News the benefit of Telemundo's expertise in the Hispanic community.
NBC News senior VP Alexandra Wallace will oversee the new partnership, which will include joint monthly polls, coverage of the campaigns and conventions, and events around the role of the Hispanic vote, estimated at 22 million eligible voters in 2012.
The partnership gives Telemundo access to the resources of a major Engligh-language news organization, much like the announcement last month that Univision will launch an Hispanic TV network with ABC News. While that channel will not premiere until 2013, a website is expected to launch this summer in time for the election.
