On-air record for Coffs DJ



WHEN 10am rolls around this morning, Andrew 'Robbo' Roberts from 2CHY will hopefully still have his eyes open and his earphones on.

If things went to plan, at midnight last night Robbo broke the world record for 'longest announcer on air on radio' for the Guinness Book of Records.

"Hopefully people will come down to the station at 10am. I don't know whether I will laugh or cry," Robbo said.

Speaking to the Coffs Coast Advocate late yesterday, Robbo sounded remarkably alert and relaxed for a man who had not slept since last Tuesday.

Robbo has been broadcasting 24 hours a day since last Wednesday in his attempt to stay on air for a massive 110 hours. After breaking the record at midnight, he hoped to continue for another 10 hours.
