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

AUTO CENTRAL--Once again, for the fourth year in a row, THE AUTO CHANNEL Internetwork, (www.theautochannel.com), will present 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 exclusively 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. However, THE AUTO CHANNELs extensive behind-the-scenes broadcasts give every automotive enthusiast and fan around the world a personal and unedited look at all the events. These broadcasts, as well as all of the content and information on TACH are available hassle-free, without any cost or obligation to users.

Coverage of the Los Angeles Auto Show will begin on Thursday, January 4th, with two jam-packed days of new vehicle introductions, press conferences, and celebrity interviews. BMW, Volkswagen, Ford, Isuzu, Panoz, Volvo, Daewoo, Dodge and Jaguar are among the manufacturers scheduled to unveil new vehicles or significant updates. TACHs coverage will receive an energetic start on Thursday morning with the Motor Press Guild Breakfast and keynote address by Dr. Wolfgang Reitzle; group vice president of Ford Motor Company's Premier Automotive Group.. As head of the international operations of Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln and Volvo, Reitzle will, among other things, discuss the current and future state of the luxury market.

Coverage of the North American International Auto Show from Cobo Center will commence on Sunday, January 7th, and continue through Wednesday, January 10th. Ferrari, Bentley, Ford, Toyota, Porsche, Suzuki, Mercedes Benz, Infiniti, Mitsubishi, Kia, Audi, GM 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/2001autoshows/laias". The Detroit show broadcasts and program schedule will be available at "www.theautochannel.com/cybercast/2001autoshows/naias".

THE AUTO CHANNEL recently completed four days of live broadcasts from the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week Trade Show in Las Vegas, and complete Internet video coverage of all the media introductions at the South Florida International Auto Show. Coverage of all these events, and more, are archived for continuous on-demand access. THE AUTO CHANNEL now has more than 4,000 on-demand streaming video and TV programs; about 10,000 streaming audio programs; 17 searchable databases; and well in excess of 300,000 pages of content. Since its online premiere in January 1996, THE AUTO CHANNEL has remained the Internets most complete and comprehensive automotive information resource. While other entities have struggled to find their focus or strategy for the net, TACH continues to provide its audience with an unparalleled experience. The main entrance to THE AUTO CHANNEL Internetwork is located at http://www.theautochannel.com
