Art Laboe to begin record-breaking 75th year on the radio

Art Laboe, who started his radio career in 1943, begins his 75th year as a radio DJ on Sunday at KSAN-FM. Laboe is 92, and still rocking.

I can only think of one other jock who was on the air for 70+ years, that was the late Hal Jackson who was on Washington and New York radio for 73 years (1939-2012). He was still on the air at age 96.

When I saw KSAN FM I did a bit of googling because that was one of the early classic free form stations. Looks like Art Laboe began on KSAN in 1943 but his current program is syndicated and available on on these stations:
