Event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein issued the following joint statement: "The fact that so many major media companies are joining forces to distribute and stream this important event to homes worldwide will enable us to create a tremendous and unprecedented fundraising effort on a global scale to benefit the victims of this devastating storm."

With every major U.S. media company airing the benefit on at least one of their networks, 34 channels will "take over" TV for the night. Clear Channel Media and Entertainment will broadcast the concert live on its radio stations across the country, and will also video stream live on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel's digital radio service, and across the websites and Facebook pages of its 850 stations.
