Colorado public broadcasters are among stations uniting for a live on-air fundraiser Thursday for victims of recent destructive wildfires in the state.

Denver stations Rocky Mountain PBS, Colorado Public Television and KUVO-FM, along with KUNC-FM in Greeley and KRCC-FM in Westcliffe, will participate in the “Red Cross 2013 Colorado Wildfires Fundraiser” statewide broadcast, along with six commercial stations. Donations will support Red Cross efforts to assist residents affected by the recent Black Forest fire, and other wildfires that may occur this year.

Red Cross volunteers will take calls from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time at Rocky Mountain PBS’s studios in Denver.
