TEXAS CABLE OPERATORS SUPPORT HAITI RELIEF EFFORT
The five major cable operators serving Texas have agreed to donate air time to run public service announcements (PSAs) to raise money for the Haiti earthquake relief effort.
PSAs will be viewed by Texans who subscribe to Cable One, Charter Communications, Comcast, Suddenlink Communications and Time Warner Cable. The five companies are members of the Texas Cable Association.
Among the PSAs for Haiti relief are the 30-second spot featuring First Lady Michelle Obama that calls for donations to the Red Cross and a spot featuring former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to raise contributions to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
“Texas cable operators did not hesitate when asked to help spread information on how Texans can help those whose lives were devastated by the earthquake in Haiti,” said TCA Chairman Ray Purser. “Communicating is what cable does best, and there is no more worthwhile use of our communications network than helping to bring relief and aid during a major disaster.”
TCA (www.txcable.com) is the primary trade organization for cable operators in Texas.
