Text for Your Favorite During Telethon

KEYT-TV Channel 3 will show telethon Saturday and Sunday

Viewers of the Cottage Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network Telethon on Saturday and Sunday will serve as judges to help select the winning performer among local students who will showcase their talents to support the hospital.

The music and dance performances by junior high and high school students will air throughout the telethon broadcast on KEYT-TV Channel 3. In an interactive style borrowed from TV’s top shows American Idol and Dancing With the Stars, viewers across Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties will be asked to send in a text message vote for their favorite performer. The winner with the most votes will be announced at the end of the Telethon.

The students performed at a recent benefit event held on Mother’s Day at SOhO music club in Santa Barbara, and KEYT taped the show to air during the telethon broadcast.

Tune in to KEYT-TV Channel 3 Saturday starting at 8 p.m. through Sunday at 4 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
