DJ within sight of world live broadcast record

2:12 pm on 7 July 2010

A Tolaga Bay DJ was on Wednesday closing in on the world record for the longest non-stop live broadcast.

Uawa FM's Nikora Curtis, 59, has in his sights the title set by American Johnny Walker, of 175 hours.

Nikora Curtis said he'd found Tuesday night the most difficult, after six days with little or no sleep, but was on the home stretch to the finish line at 1.10pm on Thursday.
