GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will appear in a live-streamed interview Wednesday afternoon on the Spanish language network Univision.
The 3:30 p.m. event will be translated in English on Univision's Facebook page and appear there in Spanish.
President Barack Obama will have an interview there at 11:10 a.m. Thursday, also in English and Spanish.
Both interviews will be broadcast on Univision at 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday on the network's Bay Area station, Univision14, in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose.
The appearances were arranged before the outbreak of this week's controversy over Romney's secretly videotaped remarks to a private GOP gathering in which he said 47 percent of Americans pay no taxes and also remarked jokingly that he might have a better chance running as a Latino.
Univision News anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas will moderate the two events, which are being taped before a live audience of University of Miami students.
"Hispanics will play a key role in electing the next president of the United States, and these events will help address key issues so that the more than 20 million Hispanics expected to vote this year can make an informed decision," Cesar Conde, president of Univision Networks, said in a news release.
Univision News said it will also be engaging audiences via Facebook in advance of the events on the Univision
