Autoline Launches Daily Newscast

Autoline - the world's first auto industry television show - now launches "Autoline Daily," the world's first daily global automotive news program on Tuesday, October 14th. The five-minute daily newscast, which will be posted at select sites on the World Wide Web every Monday through Friday at noon (ET), is hosted by veteran automotive journalist John McElroy. Each program will contain the latest global automotive news as well as Mr. McElroy's insight and analysis from over thirty years covering the industry.

"We're excited to be the first in the business to bring the world a daily look at what's going on in this important and global industry," said John McElroy. "And with the added strength of our media partners - WWJ Newsradio 950, Autoblog.com and WardsAuto.com," reports McElroy, "and the new partners that we will continue to add as we grow, viewers will be able to watch the newscast at any one of these sites everyday from noon Eastern time on."
