WBNS-10TV will broadcast the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon live from on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1.
Now in its 35th year, the event is held annually to help raise awareness and money for the thousands of children and families who depend on the quality care found at Nationwide Children’s Hospital every day. This unique partnership between 10TV and Nationwide Children’s Hospital allows for the opportunity to showcase the remarkable services and areas of the hospital.
“Since its inception, WBNS-10TV has been a proud partner with the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon,” said 10TV Community Affairs Director Angela Pace. “Nationwide Children’s Hospital has been a jewel to our city for many years and we are, once again, looking forward to having a chance to give back.”
The Telethon will be spread over two days; beginning Saturday, May 31. All local segments will be broadcast live on 10TV from the 10TV studios on Saturday from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. The national Telethon will continue on the air from 12:00 a.m. Sunday until 3 a.m. Sunday. 10TV’s live local broadcast will resume Sunday, from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
Hosting the Telethon alongside a VIP panel on Saturday will be 10TV News Anchors Jerry Revish, Jeff Hogan, Angela An, and 10TV Director of Community Affairs, Angela Pace. Hosts on Sunday include 10TV News Anchors Jeff Hogan and Angela An, Doppler 10 Meteorologist Chris Bradley, and 10TV Sports Anchors Dom Tiberi and Beau Bishop. The Telethon will also feature stories about the services Nationwide Children’s Hospital provides and the young patients and patient families NCH serves.
All local donations made during the Telethon remain right here in Central Ohio to make sure that any child who needs medical care receives medical care. No child is turned away. Throughout its history, the Telethon has raised over $150 Million.
