Shelter from the Storm

Shelter from the Storm

This from UNC-TV. And what role for WUNC?

UNC-TV is altering its broadcast schedule tonight to air SHELTER FROM THE STORM from 8 to 9 PM. This one-hour prime-time special benefitting those impacted by Hurricane Katrina will be simulcast across many commercial and cable TV networks, PBS member stations, and many radio stations. Phone lines accepting donations to this effort opened at 7 AM this morning and will remain open all day and throughout prime time. The commercial networks will be soliciting donations throughout the day's programming. All contributions collected from the morning, prime-time, and late-night fund-raising efforts will go to either the American Red Cross or The Salvation Army, depending on the donor’s preference.

Musical performers scheduled to appear on SHELTER FROM THE STORM: A CONCERT FOR THE GULF COAST include Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, Alicia Keys, Randy Newman, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, and Neil Young. Celebrity participants include Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Nicholson, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, and Sela Ward
