On Sunday December 4th, all public television stations around the country will hold a 24 hour telethon to raise money for their viewers. “This will be the first of its kind,” said James Wittman, Director of the National Public Television Panel. According to Wittman, plans are to have some programs running throughout the day, with numerous interruptions, to allow for volunteers to call people from the phone book and determine how best to send them out a big fat check. “We should really be able to help out of a lot of people,” he added. In return for their donations ,the public televisions stations are asking that those receiving the cash send back 3 CD’s for each 25 dollars they receive.
