Entravision Communications Corporation announced that it has entered into a new affiliation agreement and a new proxy agreement with Univision Communications Inc. relating to the company's Univision and UniMás network affiliate television stations.

"We have a longstanding and productive relationship with Univision and are pleased to extend our partnership through 2026," said Walter F. Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entravision. "Univision shares our commitment to the growing U.S. Latino market and we will continue to work together to best serve our local communities. Entravision remains focused on providing leading news, information and entertainment content across all of our media platforms in order to reach, engage and benefit our audiences and advertising partners."

Under the new affiliation agreement, Univision will continue to provide Entravision's existing Univision and UniMás network affiliate stations the right to broadcast Univision network and UniMás network programming in their respective markets. Under the new proxy agreement, Univision will continue to negotiate the terms of retransmission consent agreements for Entravision's Univision and UniMás network affiliate television stations in markets in which the two companies do not both own television stations. In addition, the company also entered into new amended and restated joint sales agreements, under which Entravision will continue to provide sales and marketing services for Univision and UniMás network affiliate television stations owned by Univision in six markets: Albuquerque, New Mexico; Boston, Massachusetts; Denver, Colorado; Orlando, Florida; Tampa, Florida; and Washington, D.C. The term of each of these new agreements extends through December 31, 2026, except that the agreements will expire on December 31, 2021 with respect to affiliate stations in Orlando, Florida; Tampa, Florida; and Washington, D.C. Each of these new agreements replaces its respective predecessor agreements.
