CBT Automotive Network Announces New Website and Magazine

Jim Fitzpatrick, founder and president of CBT Automotive Network announced today the launch of a new website and monthly print publication specifically targeted toward retail automotive fixed operations. “ServiceDriveToday.com and Service Drive magazine will both focus on the news, information, trends and training that dealership service departments rely on to operate highly successful and profitable fixed operations,” said Fitzpatrick, adding that currently there are no other online video channels addressing this area of dealership operations.

Both the website and the magazine will launch in May. ServiceDriveToday.com will feature a daily newscast hosted by award-winning anchors Bridget Everett and Russell Brown. It will also have video-rich content to help service directors and managers run more profitable fixed operations. Through its partnership with leading trainers in the fixed operations business, ServiceDriveToday.com will deliver valuable video content to help dealerships drive profits in their fixed operations, and its programming will feature interviews with some of the industry’s biggest names in the retail auto service sector.

Service Drive magazine will be packed full of useful information and best practices from some of the nation’s largest automotive groups and industry trainers. Unlike any other magazine in the service sector today, Service Drive will reach twice as many people twice as many times. “The website will have a reach of more than 50,000 service personnel each day, while the magazine will be delivered each month to more than 17,000 service directors and managers in the U.S. and Canada,” said Fitzpatrick. “In addition, Service Drive magazine will be electronically delivered to 50,000 service professionals each month.”

ServiceDriveToday.com and Service Drive magazine join the company’s other media sources CBTNews.com and Car Biz Today magazine.
