“CarPro” automotive industry expert Jerry Reynolds is this week’s guest on Harrison Podcast. Since its invention in the early 20e century, the impact of the automobile on society (not to mention radio) has been immeasurable…and it continues to be so today. The horseless carriage has shaped our culture and influenced us economically, architecturally, culturally and even psychologically. Jerry Reynolds is this week’s guest on the award-winning show Podcast One series, “The Michael Harrison Interview.” Reynolds is a giant in the world of automotive media. With over 40 years in the automotive industry, largely as a huge success Ford dealership in Dallas, he’s a trusted source for automotive news, insider information, and new car reviews. Over the past two decades, with co-host Kevin McCarthy, hosted a Saturday lunchtime radio show about cars called “CarPro”. He is heard for three hours locally on WBAP in the Dallas/Fort Worth market, where Reynolds is a household name, and then for an additional two hours nationally on news/talk stations across America via the CarPro radio network. It’s no wonder the show is such a hit – the automotive news ties directly into most of the topics covered in the news/talk format… the economy, the environment and the necessities of daily life . And a strong car show is a magnet for a wide range of potential advertisers. Reynolds’ stated mission is to educate consumers about the car buying process and provide them with the latest information, so listeners can make the best car buying decisions based on their needs and their budget. Harrison and Reynolds take a deep dive into how the automotive industry works today. To listen to the podcast in its entirety, click on here.
