Nearly as fast as bidders
came out of the woodwork for Aston Martin's
possible sale, CBS secured new sponsorship for its hit reality-show "Survivor" after General Motors
canceled its advertising
. States Chris Ender of CBS, "The upcoming edition of `Survivor' has a full roster of advertisers across a wide range of categories and GM's
position has been filled."
CBS would not state who was the new sponsor or if it was even another automaker. Ford
Motor Co., Toyota
Motor Corp., and all three American brands of DaimlerChrysler declined advertising on the show. Representatives from Honda
Motor Co. stated the automaker does not comment on its advertising.
