Longest Radio Quiz

While we're on the topic of radio trivia...

The longest Radio Quiz was delivered by Mr. Wilson Casey, of the radio station 1400 WKDY-AM in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He spent spent 30 consecutive hours asking trivia questions over the air. The trivia-thon began January 9th. He asked a total of 3,303 trivia questions. This is official, this feat is in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Wilson Casey is also known as the Trivia Guy. He's the host of Trivia Fun every weekday from noon until 1 p.m. The program features live, interactive entertainment as listeners scramble for open phone lines to answer his trivia questions. It is the only daily radio trivia program running today. He's also the author of trivia teaser books, and currently a syndicated newspaper columnist here.

Read a little Fybush on that.

On 01/07/2005 They changed calls to WSPG-AM dropping southern Gospel for a more salable sports talk format. I've been unable to confirm it, but I dont think Mr. Casey survived the change up.
