The Auto Channel Presents Autoline Detroit TV Special on DaimlerChrysler Merger

1 June 1998

The Auto Channel announced today that it has published an internet version of Autoline Detroit's one hour television special about the DaimlerChrysler merger.

Bob Gordon, president of The Auto Channel, said, "The DaimlerChrysler merger is arguably the most important event of recent automotive industry history. We're measuring it's impact on a global scale. From my perspective as publisher of The Auto Channel, it is particularly exciting to take a program like Autoline--which comes out of Detroit and presents an industry insider's point of view on this event--and to present that local show to a global audience, which would not have been able to see it otherwise. Providing that kind of connectivity is precisely what the internet does best.

"Autoline has produced a formidable program that will illuminate the DaimlerChrysler merger for viewers world-wide. It's remarkable. I look forward to making this kind of industry analysis available to our audience on a continuing basis."

Autoline Detroit, the only television program devoted to covering the automotive industry, has united experts from many sectors of the auto industry to discuss the merger. The program features insight and analysis from Dave Cole, director of the Office for the Study of Automotive Transportation; Paul Ballew, chief economist at J.D. Power; Jim Harbour, president, Harbour & Associates; Sandy Munro, president, Munro & Associates; Csaba Csere, editor, Car and Driver; and Dean Langford, president at Osram Sylvania.

The Autoline special originally aired on WTVS in Detroit on Sunday May 24, 1998. Autoline Detroit is produced by Blue Sky Productions of Detroit, MI and is hosted by John McElroy, Editorial Director, Automotive Industries. The show airs every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. on Detroit Public Television.
