Hurricane Sandy was a once-in-a-lifetime storm that left the East Coast reeling, but victims of the disaster are about to get a little help from some famous friends: NBCUniversal has announced that its portfolio of networks (including NBC, Bravo, USA, E! and a host of others) will be running a telethon at 8 p.m. this Friday to raise money for those affected by Sandy. It will be broadcast live from NBC’s Rockefeller Center studios and also streamed live on NBC.com.
Confirmed to perform are Christina Aguilera, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Jon Bon Jovi, with non-singing TV personalities Brian Williams and Jimmy Fallon also slated to make appearances.
