All those hours of U.S.-bashing have paid off for pro-Kremlin talk show host Vladimir Solovyov, who gained global recognition for his work Monday.

The 56-year-old pundit broke the Guinness World Record this year for “most hours of live television presented by a host in one week.”

Solovyov clocked in 25 hours, 53 minutes and 57 seconds during a marathon of shows that was capped on March 24, Guinness said. The previous record of 22 hours and 15 seconds was set in 2008 by Japanese TV host Monta Mino. 

Solovyov accomplished the feat with five days of five-hour appearances on his talk shows, he told the state-run TASS news agency Monday.
