WNBC Joins Forces to Help Veterans Find Work

As part of the ongoing NBC News special series “Making a Difference on the Homefront,” WNBC/Channel 4 is teaming up with the Manhattan and U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The program, which launched last year, is designed to get the nation’s military back in the workforce. The day-long job fair, providing opportunities for vets, will run 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. tomorrow alongside Pier 86, home of The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Katherine Creag provides live reports from the deck of the Intrepid during Today in New York, while Shiba Russell is on-scene, co-anchoring the noon and the 5 p.m. newscasts.

“NBC 4 New York is pleased to support our local veterans,” said Michael Jack, president and general manager of WNBC. “We are proud to help give our local veterans an opportunity to succeed after serving our country.”

The Today Show will also be broadcasting from the job fair starting at 7 a.m.

To register online, simply go to www.hoh.greatjob.net. On-site registration begins at 6 a.m., continuing throughout the day for job seekers.
