Airing at 8:00 p.m. on NBC, Bravo, CNBC, E!, G4, MSNBC, Style, Syfy, and USA, Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together will broadcast live on the East Coast from NBC’s 30 Rock studios in New York and tape-delayed for the West Coast. The telethon will welcome performances from Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, and Sting, along with appearances by Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams.
