Northern Telethon 2022 – Postponed

Anthonia Eboreime


We are sad to announce that we have made the decision to postpone tonight’s Telethon until a later date. One of our key players tested positive for COVID today and with the health of our performers, crew, and their families in mind, we feel this is the best decision. 

Thank you to everyone who already made contributions! You will still be eligible for our future door prize drawings, and your support still goes towards artists and infrastructure of our programming!

Thanks also to those of you who were planning to show up as our in-studio audience or tune in from home tonight! We look forward to spending another evening with you in the future.

Finally, thanks to our live performers (John Gebretatose! Mayda! the Kazoo Band!), our volunteers (Sara! Emily! Madilynn!), and our partners at Nanotako Studios (Carly! Kat! Corinne! V! Jeff! Nessa! Whitney!) for their care towards one another and their flexibility in this program change.
