Current Events and How You Can Help

How You Can Help

This station, and Channel 2 News are conducting a fundraiser to help those affected by the destructive wildfires burning in northern California.

The event is on Tuesday, October 17th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, in the west parking lot of the Atlantis Casino located on the corner of South Virginia and Peckham Lane.

The Red Cross will be accepting cash and checks donations only. Checks can be made out to the American Red Cross with California Wildfires written in the memo line.

A lot of our fellow Americans are hurting.  In quick succession, a vicious hurricane season taking lives and leaving thousands on our Mainland, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands homeless; close to home, the targeted mass killing in Las Vegas.  Now our neighbors to the west in an area beloved for its beauty and industry–Wine Country, have endured mass destruction and loss of life due to wildfires. Over 3,500 homes and businesses have been destroyed.

The rapid timeline of these disasters may seem overwhelming, and indeed the needs of many of those affected is large in nature.  As Americans unite to bring relief, there are reports of disreputable fund- raising campaigns and scams posing as charities.  If you would like to help in relief efforts, please take care that your donations will be directed to those intended.  You'll find a list of legitimate organizations actively working to provide aid and relief below.  There are likely other organizations and legitimate efforts to help, those mentioned below have proven to provide relief when tragedy strikes.

Donate Blood

The response at United Blood Services offices in Northern Nevada has been so good, that they are now asking that you go to and make an appointment if you wish to donate blood. Remember, donating blood regularly year-round is the best way to help!

Stephanie Miller

Stephanie Miller

Prior to going nationwide, Stephanie pulled #1 ratings at KABC and KFI in Los Angeles and other radio stations in New York and Chicago.

You know her from tons of exposure on TV, and on comedy’s prime stages: host of CNBC’s Equal Time, Oxygen TV’s I’ve Got a Secret, and many others. Stephanie has also appeared on CNN’s Joy Behar, Larry King Live, Reliable Sources, as well as MSNBC’s The Ed Show, Hannity and Colmes and Neal Cavuto on Fox News, the Today Show, the Tonight Show, Good Morning America, among many others.

Stephanie comes to the left, from the right. She’s the daughter of William Miller, Barry Goldwater’s 1964 Republican presidential running mate. Her humor and snappy political wit draws listeners from all sides and makes her the perfect antidote to cantankerous conservatives.



Live and Local! Panama brings a mix of pop culture, sports, politics--both the serious and the absurd—and gives you the chance to speak out about it. Whether it’s happening nationally, around the world, or around the corner, Northern Nevadans have their own take on what’s happening.

Speak out about the issues that matter to you and your family with Panama, Producer Mike and their guests. And chances are you’ll enjoy a few laughs along the way!
