KANKAEE VALLEY BROADCASTING AC WKVI/KNOX, IN jock TOM BERG plans to be on the air for 187 straight hours in an attempt to set a new GUINNESS World Record for longest continuous radio broadcast by a single host.
The current record is held by an Italian DJ who lasted a total of 183 hours, or just over a week, in MAY 2009. When asked why he wanted to attempt to break the record, BERG said, "this is a record that needs to return to the U.S., and I'm just the DJ to do it."
BERG will begin his marathon at 5a on MONDAY, JULY 9th, and if all goes according to plan, the record will be broken on MONDAY, JULY 16th at midnight.
