West Virginia Public Broadcasting will air the “Rebuild West Virginia” telethon to benefit flood recovery efforts on Friday 7 to 9 p.m. on WVPB’s main television channel. It will repeat from 9 to 11 p.m. on The West Virginia Channel.

The telethon is sponsored by the West Virginia Broadcasters Association and will originate from the WVVA television studios in Bluefield, W.Va. It is being made available to other broadcasters and online.

All proceeds from this effort will go directly to the Red Cross, which is one of the lead organizations helping with relief efforts in all areas of the state affected by the recent floods.

“We are proud to help with this effort,” said Scott Finn, executive director of WVPB. “With our statewide reach, we hope to make as many people as possible aware of this telethon.”
