Info: Our guest is Washington Post Cars Columnist Warren Brown. He has covered the auto industry for the Post since 1982. His weekly column is called “On Wheels,” and he hosts a live weekly web discussion on Washingtonpost.com called “Real Wheels Live.” He will discuss the current financial standing and overall health status of the automotive industry. In 2008, he made controversial comments in support of government auto bailouts by crediting the automotive industry with assisting in the development of the African-American middle class.
In 2002, Brown co-wrote a book with fellow columnist Martha McNeil Hamilton, called “Black and White and Red All Over: The Story of A Friendship” in which both writers discuss their friendship and her decision to give him one of her kidneys.
