As previewed earlier this week (NET NEWS 3/22), CRN INTERNATIONAL's COLLISIONS podcast network is debuting a new show based on CAR AND DRIVER magazine. "THE CAR AND DRIVER PODCAST" is being unveiled TODAY (3/25) during the NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW with daily episodes for the event, after which the show will become a weekly podcast. CRN is also producing 60-second daily features from the NEW YORK auto show for broadcast radio, including iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk WOR-A and Classic Rock WAXQ (Q104.3)/NEW YORK, and the iHEARTMEDIA HARTFORD and NEW HAVEN stations.
“This is exciting because we will provide our avid fan base a new and exciting way to engage with us,” said the magazine's Editor-in-Chief EDDIE ALTERMAN. “We’ll provide information and insights they can’t get elsewhere, and use this medium as a chance to get closer to the people who have supported CAR AND DRIVER for so many years.”
“We are very honored to bring CAR AND DRIVER to podcasting. I have admired its cherished history and reputation for great writing, honest journalism, sophisticated wit, and its importance to the automotive public, which is just about everybody,” said CRN President and Founder BARRY BERMAN. “I feel a huge responsibility to its passionate following and dedicated editorial team to extend the CAR AND DRIVER voice to this exciting new platform -- a platform, incidentally, which should be a natural for the wonderful personality of the magazine.”
