What’s Next For Auto Dealers

Posted Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Auto dealers across the country and here in Northeast Ohio are still absorbing news that GM and Chrysler plan to cut their ties with them - nearly 800 in Chrylser's case and 1100 GM dealers. Some of the losers in this story are familiar names--Spitzer, Ganley, Abraham--and big questions remain about their future, whether they have any recourse, and what will happen to the hundreds of workers they employ. Tuesday morning at 9, we'll talk with dealers and others about this latest chapter in the auto industry's shake out. Also, we're hear about one bright spot in the industry for Ford workers in Brookpark.
