BBC Sussex is currently broadcasting continuously for a special programme called “24 Hours” till 8am Friday.
All of the presenters will be involved in the special broadcast, with a team of reporters out and about across the county. As well as the on air coverage, they’ll be live updates on the BBC Sussex Facebook and Twitter feeds.
The celebration of life in Sussex ties in with the celebrations on the same day for Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday.
Highlights on the day include a visit to the West Sussex newsagent who only takes one day off a year, whilst another of our reporters will be with a zookeeper at Drusillas in Alfriston.
Commenting on the initiative, Editor Sara David said “This is a wonderful opportunity to explore everyday life in Sussex, meeting the people who make this County such a wonderful place to live and work in”.
Assistant Editor Mark Carter is also one of the presenters taking part in the on-air marathon. Mark added: “Not only should this offer a unique experience for our listeners, but it’s also a chance for all of our team to come together at the radio station and be part of something really special.”
