For the past 5 years, Cory Anotado, Bob Hagh and Christian Carrion have presented the 24-Hour Game Show Marathon, featuring 24 different game show formats in a daylong continuous charity broadcast. The 24-Hour Game Show Marathon live stream has been available for viewing at GameShowMarathon.com, where viewers were able to tweet and chat with the in-studio guests in real time. Throughout the show, donations will be accepted on behalf of Child’s Play, in an effort to reach a donation goal of $2,500.
The marathon schedule will consist of one game each hour, for 24 hours. Games that have been played during the show have included well-known American formats like Password, Family Feud and Press Your Luck, as well as classic British quiz shows such as Countdown, Bob’s Full House and QI. Every show in the broadcast will feature Cory, Bob and Christian as a host, contestant or panelist. In addition, game material (questions, puzzles, etc.), music, game equipment, and graphics for each of the 24 games in the marathon will be gathered by Cory, Bob and Christian in the months leading up to the show.
In June of 2015, the Fourth Annual 24-Hour Game Show Marathon was a record-breaking success, and we smashed all our records having raised over $5,000 for Child’s Play. The first annual Marathon holds the record for the most listened to broadcast in the 50-year history of WSIN, the official radio station of Southern Connecticut State University. The 24-Hour Game Show Marathon is also the longest continuous broadcast in the history of Connecticut radio.
