Only THE AUTO CHANNEL Brings You Every New Vehicle Introduction & Every Press Conference

AUTO CENTRAL- For the third straight year, THE AUTO CHANNEL Internetwork, www.theautochannel.com, will present exclusive wall-to-wall Media Days coverage from America's two most important automotive expositions: the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, and the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Traditionally, Media Days at the LA and Detroit shows are reserved for working automotive journalists and industry members, who get the opportunity to examine the latest offerings and final versions of new vehicles before they're put on display to the general public. But, with TACH's extensive behind-the-scenes broadcasts, every automotive enthusiast and fan around the world can be an insider, watching all the events firsthand.

Coverage of the Los Angeles Auto Show will begin on Thursday, January 6th, with two jam-packed days of new vehicle introductions, press conferences, and celebrity interviews. Porsche, BMW, Rolls Royce, Volkswagen, Ford, Subaru, DeTomaso, Saleen, Daewoo, DaimlerChrysler and Lincoln are among the manufacturers scheduled to unveil new vehicles or significant updates. Friday's broadcast will conclude with a one hour panel discussion between many of the world's foremost automotive designers. This session is part of the Southern California-based Art Center College of Design's involvement at the LA Auto Show, which is highlighted by a custom-designed and multi-faceted exhibit that features more than 30 scale models, original drawings and design studies by graduating students.

Coverage of the North American International Auto Show from Cobo Center will commence on Sunday, January 9th, and continue through Thursday, January 13th. Ford, Toyota, Jaguar, Suzuki, Mercedes Benz, Acura, Mitsubishi, Dodge, Kia and several other manufacturers have scheduled press conferences and introductions. Ford, GM, and Chrysler will also have concept car presentations.

All broadcasts and a complete program schedule for the Los Angeles show will be available through THE AUTO CHANNEL Internetwork at "www.theautochannel.com/cybercast/2000autoshows/laias". The Detroit show broadcasts and program schedule will be available at "www.theautochannel.com/cybercast/2000autoshows/naias".

THE AUTO CHANNEL recently completed three days of live broadcasts from the Cycle World Int'l. Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA; four days of live broadcasts from the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week Trade Show in Las Vegas, and three days of live broadcasts from the South Florida International Auto Show. Coverage of all these events, and more, are archived for continuous on-demand access.
