The original Bobby Likis Car Clinic was first televised in November
1986 on a locally owned cable network. This live, call-in program
was promoted as a 'car doctor show' as Bobby answered viewers'
questions and provided cures to what ailed their cars. The program
increased in popularity, and by 1991, audience response was so
tremendous that Bobby moved Car Clinic to the Gulf Coast ABC affiliate,
WEAR-TV. Here the program was an outstanding success, as reflected
in its ratings (like 15-4). As a matter of fact, Car Clinic pulled
better numbers than Terry Bradshaw's pre-game football show in
2 of the 3 metro areas along the Gulf Coast! In addition, 1991
marked the birth of the radio version of Car Clinic, originally
broadcast on 4 stations in 2 states. Today the program is enjoyed
by listeners nationwide. Not only has Bobby earned the loyalty
of his listening audience, but also that of sponsors, like Bar's Leaks,
the Steel Recycling Institute, FRIGC, and X1R.
So much for the history books...here we are in 1998! Bobby is
now broadcasting nationwide and videocasting worldwide from his
own state-of-the-art Acoustic Systems studio, uniquely designed for
full-spectrum programming--from radio to television to the Internet.
Here's where the real story comes out: Bobby Likis Car Clinic is
not your ordinary fix-it program. Oh, there are plenty of car questions
and answers. But ask Bobby and his audience the real secret
of Car Clinic's success, and they'll tell you "INFORMATION" and
"ENTERTAINMENT". Bobby uses easy-to-understand analogies
and buzz words that arm his consumer audiences with knowledge,
while entertaining them with wit, warmth and charm. In addition,
Bobby interviews Industry leaders, like Andrew Card of the
American Automobile Manufacturers Association, who inform everyone
of the latest and greatest trends. INFORMATION and ENTERTAINMENT...that's
Car Clinic. Everyone has a car question.
Understandably, the biggest car question we all have is this: Where do you go
to get straight answers about your cars? The answer is easy:
