The Los Angeles Democrat will participate with other analysts in roundtable discussions and provide commentary on the election season, presidential candidates and major political issues, according to a written statement on the company's website.
Besides assisting with election coverage, Núñez and other analysts will appear on the network's evening newscast, "Noticiero Univision"; a Sunday public affairs program, "Al Punto"; and on a morning program, "Despierta America."
Núñez led the Assembly from 2004 to 2008, when he was termed out of the lower house. He currently serves as a partner in Mercury Public Affairs -- a high-powered political consulting firm -- and he will continue to do so during his stint as an analyst, colleague Adam Mendelsohn said.
