WCVB, Hearst’s ABC affiliate in Boston, is joining the growing list of local broadcasters launching initiatives to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
The station’s efforts will start at noon Wednesday, when it will light up telephone lines as part of a telethon to raise money for the Red Cross.
The Relief Fund 5: Help for Houston telethon will air in segments throughout the afternoon, WCVB said. Cut-ins will include information about what Red Cross volunteers are doing in Texas, and how viewers can help.
