About CBT Automotive Network

CBT Automotive Network is a multimedia broadcast platform serving automotive professionals. With interviews featuring the biggest names in the industry, daily newscasts following top stories, up-to-date market data, and exclusive articles covering the latest industry trends, CBT is the leading voice of the retail automotive industry.

Whatever the subject matter, CBT News features a wide range of topics that affect retail automotive. One of the best opportunities for writers is to come up with article ideas we wouldn’t have thought of.

Solicitations & Assignments: 
CBT welcomes unsolicited articles from anyone who believes the piece is appropriate for CBT News and its readers. (Hint: Best way to figure out what is appropriate is to read or watch what we’ve published.)

Submissions may be edited and may be published at any time. CBT retains the right to also publish everything that appears on, our social networks and on other sites that use our content.

Issues & Deadlines: Published on a rolling basis.

Writing Guidelines:

Personal Style
Develop your voice, express your opinion, but be concrete in how you formed that opinion and distinguish the subjective from the objective. Your writing should display maturity and emphasize substance over attitude. But do personalize your writing; inject your life into your writing as appropriate. Search for a sense of place or a narrative.

Be thorough. If you are unsure of any facts in the article, please call this to our attention at the beginning of the article. We can help you verify the facts or remove them from the article.

Use italics for titles of recordings, videos, books, films, and television programs.

Title and Images
Every article must include a suggested title and include at least 2 supporting images.
