ABC, CBS, and NBC are teaming up to simulcast a primetime telethon in September to raise money for cancer research, the New York Times reports. CBS “Evening News” anchor Katie Couric, Charles Gibson of ABC’s “World News Tonight” and Brian Williams of NBC’s “Nightly News” will take part in the program. Ms. Couric will return to NBC’s “Today” show” to promote the effort. Ms. Couric, Mr. Williams and Mr. Gibson have all had family members die of the disease, while Jeff Zucker, CEO of NBC and Ms. Couric’s former boss, is a survivor of colon cancer, the newspaper says.
