RSL presenters break Chris Moyles’ record

Two volunteers on a temporary community radio station in Northumberland have stayed on-air together for 58 hours – beating the 52 hour record set by Chris Moyles and his Radio 1 team.

Sarah Stewart and Jamie Thirlwell completed the broadcast last weekend on Koast Radio in Morpeth.

Koast Station Manager Vicky Oakley, who came up with the idea, told the Morpeth Herald: “They broke Chris Moyles’ record at 10.30am on Saturday and they just carried on because it was such a massive success.

“The support of the public was just phenomenal. The phone never stopped ringing and the webcam had so many hits. It was just unbelievable and a massive effort from everyone.

“I’m so proud of everyone involved with it.”

The presenters raised £1,500 for a local charity.
