Arashi has been chosen to be the main personality for this year's charity telethon "24-Hour Television 36 Ai wa Chikyuu wo Sukuu".
The charity program started in 1978 for NTV's 25th anniversary and has become a yearly tradition for the network, raising awareness and money for various causes over the years.
The theme for this year's program will be "What is Japan...? ~The shape of this country~" which focuses on educating people about the negative aspects of Japan while also displaying the good the country has and is doing.
"We have a huge responsibility serving as the show's main personality for 2 consecutive years. We want to spend lots of time preparing this year's 24-Hour Television theme. We want to make this a program that encourages the viewers," Arashi stated.
Arashi has served as the main personality for the TV special 3 times in the past. The announcement marks the first time anyone has hosted the show 2 years in a row.
