MotorWeekRating: 3.0/5 (with 1 vote)
MotorWeek is an American news and information program centered around automobiles. The subject matter presented includes tests of cars currently on the market, along with tips on maintenance and previews of cars to come. The program is produced by Maryland Public Television for PBS, and also airs on the Discovery Networks channel MotorTrend. MotorWeek is hosted by John Davis, who has presided over the program since it premiered on October 15, 1981. Davis created the show for what was originally the Maryland Center for Public Broadcasting (now Maryland Public Television) and serves as its executive producer. From its inception until 1988, the program’s main segments emanated from a studio in Owings Mills, Maryland, where production is still based. Since then, all shooting is done outdoors in various locales. The change coincided with the program adding the year to its title, which became MotorWeek ‘88; MotorWeek continued to do this until 1993 when they simply began referring to the show by its normal title again. Originally airing new, thirty-minute episodes for twenty-six weeks a year, MotorWeek airs new episodes year-round on both PBS and MotorTrend. The show is also syndicated internationally through the American Forces Network. ()
