If you have not been to New York, you should know that Rockefeller Studios is one of the most amazing and magical places to go visit! Especially, if you are a true fan of TV, Movies and Radio!
When you walk the street and see the signs, you can only begin to imagine the entertainment history of the complex and it’s far-reaching impact on everyone you know. So much television history is linked to the NBC Studios in New York City.
You can envision your mom and dad watching the television show Howdy Doody in black and white. From the time I was old enough to stay up late enough, I remember watching Saturday Night Live.

The Today Show started there in 1952 and still shoots there every morning. Johnny Carson started his The Tonight Show run in the NBC Studios in New York before moving to Los Angeles. Stars of every conceivable profession from News to Sports to TV to Film have graced it’s halls.

It will air live on the East Coast and tape-delayed on the West. Additional networks could join the broadcast of the telethon prior to airtime and the telethon will be live-streamed on NBC.com.
The Money collected will be donated to the American Red Cross relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy.

I had friends posting on facebook pictures of shelves at the grocery stores bare! Check out some details below on how you can help and spread the word!
The American Red Cross response to Sandy is very large and will be very costly, affecting a massive area spanning much of the eastern half of the country. Financial donations help the American Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy. To donate, people can visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
