His column, First Coast Gears, ran Saturdays in the Drive section of The Florida Times-Union. He's done automotive video reporting for Jacksonville.com, and previously for First Coast News (WJXX-ABC 25, WTLV-NBC 12).
He's covered such events as the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance and interviewed automotive newsmakers that include General Motors Global Vice President of Design Ed Welburn and Ford Executive Vice President Mark Fields.
Bill co-hosted a weekly automotive show called Pod Rods that ran on Jacksonville.com, iTunes, Zune, inside the Pod Rods smartphone app and inside the Augusta Chronicle smartphone app.
Pod Rods got its name because it was launched as a podcast (Pod) about hot rods (Rods). It later also became an Internet and newspaper column as well as a smartphone application. Pod Rods was started in 2006 and retired in 2011 when Bill changed jobs.
