AOL's leading automotive research and news sites, AOL Autos and Autoblog, today announce that two of its original series, AOL Autos' TRANSLOGIC and Autoblog’s “ The List,” will now be broadcast on SPEED, the foremost automotive-enthusiast channel on TV and a member of the FOX Sports Media Group, premiering Tuesday, February 5. AOL Autos and Autoblog will now be available on every screen consumers watch -- phones, tablets, desktops, and now the family room TV set.
Autoblog’s “The List” is hosted by Jessi Combs and Patrick McIntyre, who tackle the “1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die,” including challenges like lapping Germany’s Nürburgring, driving over 200 miles per hour and learning to drift. Through the hosts, viewers live out their automotive bucket-list fantasies.“These are experiences, many of which were suggested by the readers of Autoblog.com themselves, that automotive enthusiasts of every ilk and degree dream of having,” said John Neff, editor-in-chief of Autoblog, who helped to create the series. Autoblog, which obsessively covers the auto industry, is among the top automotive sites for auto enthusiasts and influencers. “This partnership between AOL Autos and SPEED is a natural fit that makes perfect sense,” said Robert Ecker, SPEED’s Vice President of Programming and Executive Producer. “Each brand has carved a distinct yet complementary space in the automotive world. Expanding TRANSLOGIC and “The List” into long-form programs for cable television has been a shared goal of both companies for quite some time. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Team AOL on bringing both of these projects to fruition.” About AOL: AOL Inc.
