Beginning on September 12, 'Noticiero Univision Edición Digital' will be broadcast LIVE on the Univision Network and streamed LIVE on Univision.com, Facebook Live, YouTube and Periscope, Monday-Friday at 12:00 p.m. ET/PT (11:00 a.m. Central).

Dynamic, informal and highly interactive, ‘Edición Digital’ will deliver the news in a refreshingly bold, out-of-the-box format that matches the vibrant style of its two new anchors, accomplished young journalists Javier Olivares and Carolina Sarassa. Along with a talented team of reporters, Olivares and Sarassa will present the day’s most relevant stories from the floor of the Univision newsroom in a candid, conversational tone while staying connected with viewers via social media throughout the broadcast. Going even further in its unique style, the show will take viewers behind the scenes to see how the news reporting process works, and will actively engage its audience through the new reporter digital, which will enable users to become part of the news team by reporting breaking stories.
