Model and Host of TV’s “Fine Tuned” Set to Present at The “Oscars” of the Auto Industry

DETROIT, MICHIGAN – Considered the highest paid Black male model in the world, Tyson Beckford, who currently hosts the television car series “Fine Tuned,” has joined a star-studded lineup of presenters for the 12th Annual Urban Wheel Awards (UWA). The spectacular event will take place on January 15, 2008 at the majestic Fox Theatre in Detroit. The Urban Wheels Awards, known as the Academy Awards of the automotive industry, will pay tribute to those pioneering automotive industry leaders who transcend the mainstream and embrace diversity to create and improve products and services that appeal to a larger customer base.

The only forum to recognize the top African American, Asian and Latino executives in the automotive and ancillary industries, the UWA will also include A-list entertainment, industry leaders and Hollywood celebrities presenting the UWA awards to the winners in the 12 categories. With a theme this year of “Fashion, Stars & Cars,” the 2008 UWA will be an evening to remember.
