Radio legend Art Laboe, 92, will begin his 75th consecutive year on the radio this Sunday, September 24. He will break the Guinness World Record for the longest career as a radio presenter/DJ this Sunday on KDAY-FM Los Angeles as he kicks off his 75th year on-air. Laboe' s professional career began at KSAN/San Francisco on September 23, 1943. Laboe was inducted in the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2012 and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of radio in 1981.

"Art Laboe is an LA legend like Vin Scully and Chick Hearn... his work and brand are truly synonymous with LA's music history and culture," said Meruelo Media President Otto Padron. "It is an honor to have him as a part of our Meruelo Radio Family."

The record breaking feat can be heard live on the Art Laboe Sunday Special immediately following Sunday's Raider's football broadcast on KDAY-FM at 9pm PT on September 24.

Laboe said, "I have one of the best jobs in the world, playing the music, interacting with our listeners, doing their dedications and connecting them with their loved ones. Thank you to our dedicated fans that have listened through the decades and made The Art Laboe Connection a family tradition. And thank you to the promoters we work with on our concerts and to our many friends and colleagues at our many radio stations that have aired and currently air The Art Laboe Connection."
