The Edge's Jono, Ben and Sharyn break world record with Perez Hilton, Troye Sivan, Dan Carter

  • 28/06/2019

The Edge Afternoons hosts Jono, Ben and Sharyn have successfully broken a world record after interviewing 355 people back to back. 

The drive time presenters needed to conduct more than 347 interviews over 1,440 minutes live on air to break the Guinness world record for the most interviews in 24 hours. 

Guests included Peking Duk, Drax Project, Troye Sivan, Perez Hilton and Andy King, infamous for his involvement in the Fyre Festival scandal. 

The record was previously held by an American radio personality called Pavlina Osta, who achieved the feat in November 2014. 

The official rules stated that each interview had to be made up of a minimum of five unique questions. 

Kiwi rugby legend Dan Carter was the second to last interviewee, before Prime Minster Jacinda Arden called in to close out the event.  

With just minutes to go, Ardern joked she was doing a well-being check on the team before offering her congratulations. 

Confetti rained from the ceiling as the trio completed their challenge and thanked The Edge listeners for their support.
