A Lawrence man has fallen short in his quest to break the Guinness World Record for live-hosting a TV talk show. Mike Anderson, host of the Not So Late Show on cable Channel 6, was hoping to stay on the air for 66 hours straight, but that quest ended yesterday (SUN), when he was a little more than half way to his goal. Last week, Anderson told KPR News why he wanted to capture the Guinness world record for the longest marathon talk show.
Anderson spent more than 39 hours "live" on the air before the decision was made to pull the plug on breaking the record. It's not clear yet whether he'll make another attempt in the future.
