Do you think any of our iRadio presenters will be on-air for 71 years?!
85-year-old Mary McCoy has set the Guinness World Record for the longest career on radio.
The Texas based DJ has spent 71 years presenting shows on the airwaves, – starting her career at the age of 12.
She first started working at a local station called KMCO in 1951.
Now, at the age of 85, she presents a country music show SIX days a week on KVST K-Star Country.

McCoy was also an accomplished singer back in her day, which led to her radio break after being discovered on stage.
She even shared a concert with Elvis Presley and his band back in 1955.
The Guinness World Record previously belonged to a radio DJ who had served 68 years on-air.
McCoy is less than two weeks shy of being in broadcast radio for 72 years in total.
