I think this idea of a lav mic going into a recorder in a pocket is the worst Ive ever heard and completely amateur.
If you have responsibility of recording this audio as you say, then how do you have any means of intervening or control on a recorder in a pocket.
What if the batteries die, get dislodged, the recorder stops, the mic becomes knocked or any of a hundred other things that can go wrong with a un monitored recording. If thats your solution then id grab any help from the pa company you can get cos they're likely waay better than you .
Also, say the presenter gets changed at the last minute, to a lady who is wearing a figure hugging dress - what are you going to do then? tape it round her waist?

Why not get a proper pro radio mic, double mic him, record that properly and get the sound desk engineer to give you a feed of theirs too on a sep track.
