Chris Harris is undoubtedly one of the most iconic automotive journalists of our time. His work’s supported in the growth of several publications including Autocar, Evo and Pistonheads.com, as well as a little YouTube channel called Drive which you may or may not have heard of. Kidding when we say it’s small. The Drive channel been on YouTube for about three years and Chris Harris’s show has been a massive hit throughout. The Drive team even inked a deal with NBCUniversal to produce a show for the NBC Sports Network and have since gone with a subscription model that runs $3.99 per month. In a statement published on Kinja over the weekend, Chris Harris announced that he’ll still be close to the Drive team on future productions but that his segment, Chris on Cars, will be going to its own free YouTube channel.
I’ll remain a close friend of the /DRIVE brand and involved in its future productions, but will be offering even more access to my content through the next phase of Chris Harris on Cars, which will launch its new YouTube channel, free to air, November 12.
Hold tide ’til then, folks.
