It’s another year for the MDA Telethon and our very own “Shotgun Tom” Kelly’s 15th year hosting the local segments on our sister station KCAL 9.
This year’s Telethon will be a bit different from past years. Besides Jerry Lewis not being the main host, the program will be cut down to six hours from the 21.5 hours its been for years.
The shorter show, which is expected to draw more viewers in its prime-time slot, will be fast-paced and jam-packed with top-notch entertainment.
In addition to the shorter national broadcast, each hour of the local Telethon will feature two local segments of seven and eight minutes each, which will be hosted by own own “Shotgun Tom” Kelly.
You can see this year’s MDA Telethon on KCAL 9 on Sunday from 5pm-12:30am.
