National series MotorWeek celebrates 35 years in public television with a special anniversary episode
The 35-year anniversary special of television’s longest-running automotive series, MotorWeek, premieres on public television stations across the country on Saturday, October 10, 2015.
In this special anniversary episode, the MotorWeek crew has dug deep into the archives to put together an entertaining and informative ride back through time. Feature segments will track the evolution of automotive styling over the past 35 years; re-visit MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Award winners to see which picks have stood the test of time; showcase the most iconic and influential vehicles we’ve road-tested; reminisce over our favorite adventures, destinations and people; and poke a bit of fun at ourselves with a classic selection of humorous bloopers, flubs and spins.
Throughout the rest of MotorWeek’s 35th season, Host and Executive Producer John Davis will continue to lead a team of on-air reporters in rigorously testing and evaluating new vehicles and assessing cars’ performance, practicality, efficiency, and safety. More than 150 cars are examined annually for the benefit of viewers.
MotorWeek’s feature line-up will continue with the return of popular segments such as Goss’ Garage with MotorWeek’sresident Master Technician Pat Goss offering know-it-yourself car care advice. Yolanda Vazquez also keeps viewers in the know with consumer news and trends in “Motor News” segment. Zach Maskell turns up the fun with a look at the auto world in overdrive during the “Over the Edge” segment. Lauren Morrison delivers timely information on driving and automotive safety, money-saving advice and technological advances in the “FYI” segment.
