Automotive news content
need some pointers

 6:09 pm on Jul 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi everyone,

I am developing an automotive site and one of the ideas I had was to include automotive news, categorized by the different makes. However upon further research, I discovered that all of the good news sources, such as manufacturer press releases and sites such as newspress.co.uk require you to register. Also they require that you be a journalist or have some other connection to the media in order to register. I was extremely disappointed by this, since I am no journalist. What I would like to ask all of you is there any other options for me out there? Maybe someone knows of a site(s) that offer automotive news feeds, be it a free service of paid. I would greatly appreciate if someone could point me in some direction.

Best regards.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Brigs.

Note that the definition of "journalist" can be rather fluid these days. If you have a blog or publish news items on an automotive web site, you may well qualify as a journalist. Also, check the major press release sites (PRWeb, PRNewswire, etc.) for releases.

I am a journalist - but the registration process is just that - a simple registration.

If you run an automobile site, consider yourself an automobile journalist. Journalism is more or less a way to describe a kind of work thats all.
