AUTO CENTRAL - For the fourth straight year, The Auto Channel and Aftermarket Business Magazine will join forces to present complete live TV ON THE NET coverage of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada.

AAIW is the combination of several industry organization tradeshows brought together under one giant umbrella. The three principals groups are SEMA, Specialty Equipment Market Association; AAIA, Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (formed by the merged APAA and ASIA organizations); and MEMA, the Motor Equipment Manufacturers Association.

Thousands of exhibitors, and in excess of 100,000 buyers from more than 75 countries, are expected to fill every nook and cranny of available display space throughout the city.

The four-day exposition begins Tuesday, November 2nd, and ends Friday, November 5th. The Auto Channels live TV ON THE NET broadcasts will originate from Aftermarket Business Magazines exhibit area, booth #4013, at the Sands Convention Center, and a variety of locations in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Five 30 minute shows will be presented on each of the four days. Show times will be 9:30am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, 2:30pm and 4:00pm. All times are Pacific Time.

This year's on-air hosting crew for the broadcasts consists of an all-star team of veteran TV/radio automotive experts. On Tuesday, Professor Harold Wolchok, host of AUTO LAB, a weekly radio show heard throughout the New York metropolitan area, will emcee the TACH broadcasts. On Wednesday and Friday, Tom Torbjornsen, host of the national and local syndicated radio show THE CAR SHOW, will assume hosting duties. On Thursday, repair guru Bobby Likis, host of the nationally syndicated CAR CLINIC radio show, will anchor each of the broadcasts. All three radio shows are also a part of The Auto Channels regular weekly Internet broadcast schedule.
