Auto Show hits high gear with TV, radio broadcasts of Charity Preview

Tonight is the official kickoff of the 2010 North American International Auto Show with the annual Charity Preview. It's always one of the most anticipated evenings for Metro Detroit, but especially so this year with all the attention on the auto industry this past year. It's always been a big night and a great place to be seen and heard.

If you can't be there in person, WDIV-TV 4 and WJR AM 760 have you covered on television and radio.

Starting at 7 p.m., Local 4 will take viewers inside the 2010 NAIAS Charity Preview party with a live 2-hour primetime special on a night when a backdrop of beautiful cars sets the scene to raise significant donations for local children's charities. 4 From The Floor: The 2010 NAIAS Charity Preview is hosted by Local 4's Carmen Harlan, Devin Scillian, Guy Gordon, Rhonda Walker, Chuck Gaidica, Rod Meloni and Heather Zara and will feature special appearances by stars of NBC's popular daytime drama Days Of Our Lives, Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) and Shawn Christian (Daniel), Ross Matthews of The Jay Leno Show, and popular television actor Erik Estrada.

4 From The Floor: The 2010 NAIAS Charity Preview also includes interviews with top auto industry executives, a look at some of this year's most impressive vehicles, and the ultimate buyer's guide to purchasing a new car in these tough economic times with a review of models and features to suit a wide range of driving needs. Viewers will also have the chance to challenge their knowledge of car trivia when they play along with "Auto Jeopardy!" hosted by Alex Trebek.

WJR's Paul W. Smith will also broadcast the event live from the Ford Motor Company exhibit from 6:30pm-8pm. Expect timely guests and reports as the evening unfolds. WJR will also be on hand all next week for the following broadcasts: Saturday, January 16th and 23rd: 9am-11am - The CAR Show; Sunday, January 17th: Noon-2pm - The Handyman Show with Glenn Haege; and Monday, January 18th - Friday, January 22nd: 9am-Noon - The Frank Beckmann Show.

RADIO ONE DETROIT OM MS. SMILEY checks in to update us on some changes that have taken place at Urban WHTD (HOT 102.7). Middayer SUGAR RAY is out. SHORTY DA PRINCE goes to nights and replaces BIG GREG, who moves to middays... Ch-Ch-Changes at Radio One Detroit (Fri, 1/15)
