MOSCOW, April 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Two radio anchormen from "Govorit Moskva" radio station have set a world record, being on air in a live broadcast for 53 hours with neither sleep nor breaks, the press service of " Govorit Moskva" radio told Itar-Tass.
The record winners - Igor Ryabov and Sergei Vorobyov, had been on air live for 53 hours running on April 2-4 without sleep and rest. Their record will be put on the Guinness Book of Records as the longest radio team talk show, the press service said.
Radio audiences could follow the process not only listening to the live radio broadcast, but also followed the talk show on an official website of "Govorit Moskva" radio, which during those days entirely focused on the process of setting the world record.
"What can one do within 53 hours?" one of the two winners wondered. "Turn around more than two times if one is the Earth, watch the Lord of the Rings film six times, eat, sleep, give birth to a child and do many other things, such as setting a new world record by conducting the longest ever radio talk show live, which was exactly what we did," Igor Ryabov told Itar-Tass.
