Time Inc. Pulls The Plug On Fast Lane Daily YouTube Show

Fast Lane Daily, the longest-running car show on YouTube, has been put on “hiatus for the foreseeable future” by parent company Time Inc.

Derek DeAngelis, the show’s host, announced that the bad news came without any notice from their bosses who acquired the show along with the /Drive channel about five months ago.

FLD’s first episode went live back in 2007, making them one of the first automotive outlets to take full advantage of the YouTube platform. Since then, the show has been presenting news daily in their own special way, which in turn earned them a huge audience.

“As time went on, no pun intended there, we never really, to be quite honest, felt at home here,” Derek D said. “People just didn’t seem to care and it sucked. A loyal fan-base doesn’t really matter to the bottom line.”

We still don’t know if the show is completely dead though, as Derek D mentioned in the video that there are some companies interested in buying FLD from Time. Until we know for sure, all we can say is that this show really deserves a better fate than this.

“I want to make it abundantly clear that I thank you guys, the fans, for sticking with me and this show for so long. It’s been a part of my life for almost nine years, so you can imagine it’s hard for me, coming to the realization that it’s most likely done,” Derek D concluded in the final (?) episode of Fast Lane Daily.
