Doron Levin, formally of The Detroit Free Press, will be launching his latest project in form of a new SiriusXM radio show titled, In The Driver’s Seat. And how fitting for the show to launch with an interview with the woman in charge of one of the world’s largest automakers: General Motors CEO, Mary Barra.
Levin will open the show with a few major headlines in the automotive industry, but turn over the rest of the program to a one-on-one interview with Barra. Topics Barra covers range from her 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 convertible purchase, which she has titled “The Beast,” turmoil in the Chinese market and her goal of transforming GM into a place where young minds, and fresh talent, want to work.
On the topic of China particularly, Barra remains heavily optimistic despite recent economic woes.
“Is it going to be a little more volatile? Probably. Is there still opportunity? Absolutely. Are we there for the long term? Most certainly,” she said.
Levin’s show will air Saturdays at noon on SiriusXM channel 121, with an encore broadcast at 9 a.m. every Sunday.
