Stand Up To Cancer … Tonight!

(CBS)
It's been a whirlwind of activity for weeks now, preparing for a program that's been more than a year in the making. Usually we're competitors – but now I'm happy to say my network colleagues Brian Williams and Charlie Gibson will join me for this a landmark TV event called "Stand Up To Cancer."

We've designed it as a special time in which Americans can come together for a commercial-free hour to help raise the money needed to eradicate this disease, which claims more than half a million lives in this country every year – that's one American who dies every second.

On the show tonight, you'll see everything from entertainment to scientific breakthroughs. We'll have musical performances (James Taylor and Sheryl Crow to name a couple) and show you the future of cancer research, including some cutting-edge innovations.

So, check it out on any of the three networks tonight (though of course you'll be tuned to CBS!) at 8 p.m. ET/PT or 7 p.m. CT. Or you can learn more about our exciting endeavor anytime StandUp2Cancer.org.

See you tonight!
