A look back at the stages utilized for the live broadcasts of the hurricane relief telethons. Several stages were used for the performances, phone banks, media and production. Set Lighting & Grip teams were integral in pulling everything together. 👍🏼💯 #stage #tbt #setlighting #grip #studioservices #telethon
