Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Brian Williams will host the "Stand Up To Cancer" telecast on Sept. 10 to raise awareness and money for research

The new anchors' respective networks – ABC, CBS and NBC – are donating an hour of airtime for the primetime event from Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT. It'll also be shown on HBO, Discovery Health, E!, MLB Network and The Style Network.

The show, which returns after a two-year break, will include celebrities, sports figures and musical performances. The 2008 program featured an emotional appearance by Patrick Swayze, who later died after a fight with pancreatic cancer.
