AutoWeek Radio hits airwaves Saturday evenings
DETROIT, June 29 -- AutoWeek, serving the nation's most passionate car buyers, hit the country's airwaves on June 27 with the launch of AutoWeek Radio. The program gives listeners the latest news, opinions, car reviews and racing updates in a light, insightful and factual manner - much like the magazine itself.
AutoWeek Radio airs each Saturday at 7:00 p.m. PT. The hour-long program, which airs on approximately 40 stations nationwide, is the first of its kind for the magazine. Visit autoweek.com/radio for a complete list of stations.
"This is another extension of AutoWeek's authoritative voice and reach to hungry consumers enthusiastic about cars, trucks and sport-utility vehicles," said KC Crain, AutoWeek vice president and publisher. "We continually strive to provide information that is accessible and entertaining - whether through the magazine pages, at autoweek.com, on an MP3 player or mobile device, through video or now over the radio. We deliver the latest and greatest information from an exciting industry."
Each week, the editors, contributors, guests and celebrities will bring to life the latest news from an ever-changing car world. With more than 50 years under its belt, AutoWeek delivers insight in a way no other source can.
The nationally syndicated radio program, hosted by Thomas Michael Berg, is broadcast on the Radio America Network and reaches more than half a million listeners every week.
"AutoWeek Radio brings an added dimension to one of the most successful and long-running automotive magazine brands, and it is an honor to be part of this innovation," said Berg. "What better way to appeal to AutoWeek fans than to reach them via the airwaves, whether it is sharing their commuting time or their garage time. The show will bring more people into touch with AutoWeek insight during this revolutionary time in the world's auto industry."
AutoWeek magazine is a fortnightly automotive-enthusiast publication based in Detroit, Mich., and is one of more than 30 titles published by Crain Communications Inc. Through its print and online products, the AutoWeek brand is symbolic of core automotive passion. It is a must-read for those who live the automotive lifestyle. AutoWeek delivers by-the-minute news at autoweek.com while taking an in-depth look at the enthusiast world in the primarily subscription-based magazine. AutoWeek provides readers with more information more often, giving them their car fix before the other guys even start their engines.Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090610/DE30482LOGO
