Charlie Gibson and the crew from ABC's World News Tonight
will be rolling into Motown
this week to tape the show from Detroit tonight and Tuesday. Clearly the state of the auto industry in the U.S. is national news, and where better to report on it than the epicenter of Detroit? Both Ford CEO Alan Mulally and GM CEO Rick Wagoner will be on the show Monday, hopefully together, which will make for some very interesting dinner conversation when the show airs at 6:30PM. Gibson will be broadcasting the show from Ford's Rouge assembly plant
, which is a historic landmark in the history of the auto industry. For those who live in Detroit, Gibson will also moderate a "town hall meeting on the state of the automotive industry" live on WXYZ, an ABC affiliate station in Detroit. It'd be cool if someone tech savvy in Detroit could TiVo that bad boy and throw it up on YouTube or Netscape, as we'd be interested to hear what unscripted people have to say.
