Top 10 Meet the Media Profiles of 2021

When we launched our Meet the Media blog series five years ago, our mission entailed helping bridge the gap between automotive and mobility PR professionals and the key journalists who cover the automotive and mobility sectors.

Since then, we have profiled over 125 reporters and journalists who cover the automotive, mobility, Detroit and Silicon Valley business beats for a broad collection of national, Detroit, automotive, commercial vehicle, tech and business media outlets. And many of these reporters have shared insights and tips for more productive relationships and story pitches.

Appearing twice monthly throughout 2021, our Meet the Media interview series has featured  journalists from a wide range of media outlets including: Automotive News, Business Insider, CarExpert, CNET Roadshow, Crain’s Detroit Business, Fleet Maintenance, Green Car Reports, HOUR Detroit, IndustryWeek, SAE Automotive Engineering, The Boston Globe, The Detroit News, and USA Today as well as various other media.
