Here’s an official XM Radio press release about my new mobile unit. I am so excited!

Claire B. Lang to Broadcast XM “Dialed In” Show and News Coverage of Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup from Mobile Studio

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 4, 2007 – XM, the nation’s leading satellite radio service with more than 8.2 million subscribers, and Chevrolet today unveiled the XM/Chevrolet Mobile Broadcast Studio at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame at Talladega Speedway during coverage of the UAW Ford 500 weekend. The XM/Chevrolet Mobile Broadcast Studio will be “Dialed In” host Claire B. Lang’s home on the road, which will allow her to broadcast her show from any race-market location live and coast-to-coast.

The innovative vehicle is a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ that will allow Claire B. Lang to quickly move to cover racing news from team events and race-market press conferences to driver appearances and fan gatherings, further expanding her commitment to the award-winning NASCAR coverage that listeners have come to expect.

The XM/Chevrolet Mobile Studio is outfitted with the latest mobile broadcast technology, allowing Claire to research, produce and broadcast a complete show, anywhere. The mobile studio features state-of-the-art audio and video technology, including a Broadband Global Area Network satellite uplink, a 12-channel audio mixer, and a handheld Access Portable unit capable of effectively sending mono, stereo or dual mono audio over satellite. Claire can easily host up to five on-air guests with headsets and microphones for each. The vehicle also has a PA system built-in so fans can experience the show live, from any location.

Claire B. Lang hosts her daily weekday, three-hour racing show “Dialed In” on XM Sports Nation (XM channel 144) from 4-7 p.m. ET exclusively on XM.

“The XM/Chevrolet Mobile Broadcast Studio is my best traveling companion on the race circuit yet,” said Claire B. Lang. “I’m no stranger to being on the road, and am thrilled to now be cruising and broadcasting in-style.

This new mobile studio will allow me to break news wherever it happens and to continue to step up my commitment to take the race fans along with me for the ride.”

Fans can check out the state-of-the -art vehicle and meet Claire B. Lang when the mobile unit makes its first appearance outside the International Motorsports Hall of Fame (3198 Speedway Blvd) during the UAW Ford 500 weekend in front of the Talladega Speedway in Talladega, Ala. Claire will be broadcasting “dialed In” from this location live, October 4-5 from 4-7 p.m. ET.

I saw Claire B in action at the UAW FORD 500. She was up on the wheel the whole time. If you only could see how hard she works to bring us “dialed in” every day you would be shocked… I was amazed and flattered that Claire would work so hard for all 8 million of us.

Heck she rolled the window down and stuck the mike in my face….. so you all who visit better be ready to get up on the wheel cause I was bungee jumping out of the airplane with her.

Your friend in speed
