The Auto Channel Motorsports Report
with Walt Glatthaar

Scroll Down for Archived Shows


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of TACH Motorsports Report host Walt Glatthaar. Walt joined The Auto Channel family in May of 1997, and had webcast a weekly radio show during every racing season since then.

When Walt joined us several years ago he worked for KMOX in St. Louis, Missouri. That powerful radio station sent Walt's voice out to thousands of listeners located across the country. Walt was an enthusiastic radio man and continued his work with KMOX, but he also saw the potential of the Internet to bring current racing news to a global audience. Walt used his air time on The Auto Channel to prove himself a pioneer on the Internet. He was keenly devoted to delivering the best information and entertainment possible to his new Internet audience.

Walt viewed U.S. service men and women abroad as an important part of his international audience, and did what he could to recognize them. Walt served as a paratrooper with the Army's 82nd Airborne Division between 1946 and 1948, and took great pride in directly addressing America's troops abroad at the end of each of his shows. Because of this dedication, the National Association of Recruiters and Career Counselors awarded Walt their 1998 Veteran of the Year award, which he accepted at a ceremony in Washington D.C. earlier this spring.

Walt died at 71 years of age on Sunday, June 27, 1999. His death came during a weekend of races at his home town race track, Gateway International Speedway, outside of St. Louis. Walt was covering the Sears Craftsman Nationals Drag Races at the Gateway speedway, and filed his final KMOX radio report just hours before he passed.

Walt's knowledge, enthusiasm, and voice will be sadly missed by all of us.
