Hagerty Media is delighted to welcome Henry Catchpole, motoring journalist and video presenter, to its growing roster of writers and presenters.
The new show, The Driver’s Seat, makes its debut on the Hagerty YouTube channel today, and sees Catchpole take viewers on a ride with the latest and greatest sports cars to emerge from Europe.
The Driver’s Seat will complement Jason Cammisa On the Icons, Barn Find Hunter, Larry Chen Capturing Car Culture and the ever-popular Redline Rebuild series, as Hagerty Media continues to grow its impressive reach throughout the car enthusiast community – with 2.2 million subscribers already following its adventures.
“This is going to be fun,” said Catchpole. “I have watched the growth of Hagerty Media and seen for myself how its commitment to car culture, impressive team and high-quality output mirrors my own values when approaching filmmaking and writing. I look forward to putting across that shared passion in the new series of The Driver’s Seat and can’t wait to get feedback from the huge fanbase that Hagerty has brought together over the past handful of years.”
Matt Tuccillo, Director, Video and Podcast, Hagerty Media, said: “We are pleased to welcome Henry to the Hagerty community. We have been seeking the right person to speak of our passion for driving and express our knowledge of the sports car scene throughout Europe and know Henry will create memorable films that our audience will enjoy. This will be a bi-weekly show and there will be a few special surprises along the way. We’re sure our followers and Henry’s fans will enjoy the ride!”
James Mills, Editor, UK Hagerty Media, explained why Catchpole will be a great fit for the brand: “We were looking for someone who would help Hagerty Media cover the most interesting new sports cars, as well as significant cars from the past – in a way that is authentic, passionate, and knowledgeable. Henry brings all those qualities to Hagerty Media and having him onboard as a contributor will help us reach more car enthusiasts as we explore progress, technology, and performance from the driver’s seat.”
