Putting this post back on the front page for today
As you all most likely have heard by now Rob taking part in the “Hope for Haiti” telethon via satellite from the UK. We’ve been asked by many people where and at what time the telethon will air. Here is the information we’ve gathered so far. The 2 hour program will be commercial free and air starting at 8pm EST on Friday January 22nd. It will be hosted by George Clooney in Los Angeles, Wyclef Jean in New York, Anderson Cooper in Haiti and Robert Pattinson in the UK. If you know particular channels for your country give us a shout so we can add it to our list.
