Traverse City, Mich. (Saturday, May 01, 2010) -Hagerty, the worldwide leader in collector car insurance, announces “Hagerty’s Inside Classic Cars” live radio talk show, which debuted in late April. The program is broadcast on Sundays from 4 – 5pm (EST) on The American Talk Radio Network.
The longer format that radio offers will allow for in-depth conversations with industry experts and celebrities on topics such as collector car values, hobby trends, car maintenance, care tips and events.
The show is hosted by Bob Long, considered to be the most-listened-to automotive personality on commercial radio in America. Long will interview various leaders in the hobby and has featured broadcasts from some of the biggest collector car events in the country such as Pebble Beach, Scottsdale and Amelia Island.
“The opportunity to dive deep into discussion on all things collector car and connect with car guys all over the country is what led us to develop a radio show,” says McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance. “Hagerty’s Inside Classic Cars is the first national radio program dedicated exclusively to collector cars and will offer enthusiasts the opportunity to share their passion of old cars with industry experts directly.”
Show topics range from week to week and will include the following: interviews with racing legends like Brian Redman and Denise McCluggage as well as automotive journalists such as David E. Davis, Jr. and Ken Gross; in-depth discussion of car values; unique shows dedicated to a particular marque, from Duesenbergs to Datsuns; car maintenance from some of the top experts in the hobby; and one-on-ones with some of the most knowledgeable car guys and gals in the country.
