The Life of Leading Sports, Entertainment, Technology Journalist & Media Influencer To Be Chronicled in The Raw Truth
LOS ANGELES – Embracing the increasing demand from automotive enthusiasts to be more connected to the ins and outs of the automotive universe on a more frequent basis, Kimatni D. Rawlins, president and publisher of Automotive Rhythms Communications, LLC, a lifestyle automotive media and marketing portal, announced today that he would add a personal blog dubbed The Raw Truth to Automotive Rhythms’ already impressive menu.
Reflecting Kimatni’s blunt, no-nonsense approach to life around cars, The Raw Truth will allow the publisher to be a bit more personal and timely with his auto-related experiences. Adding a little more diversity to Automotive Rhythms, The Raw Truth will touch on the pros and cons of new vehicle technology, sneak peaks, professional athletes, entertainment, technology, travel and, of course, Kimatni’s onscreen hosting through www.ARtvLive.com. The Raw Truth will also provide an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how Kimatni keeps his media properties on top.
Whether it’s touring the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood, England; investigating Nissan’s all electric vehicle in Nashville; off-roading Land Rovers in Scotland; exploring ancient castles with British hand-built vehicles; capturing Hyundai’s latest challenge to take on the big boys with the Equus at SEMA in Las Vegas, or hanging with Jay Leno and Jaguar, Kimatni is in the thick of it all. Like the cars and trucks he drives, Kimatni is very much in tune with everything automotive. Since establishing Automotive Rhythms in 2001, Kimatni has led the industry in identifying the automotive trends of tomorrow and The Raw Truth is just a natural progression of that. So those who follow The Raw Truth will be privy to more than just vehicles.
“I have the privilege of evaluating some of the world’s most celebrated vehicles while travelling the globe,” says Kimatni. “I experience new cultures, interesting places, celebrity-filled events and so much more on a regular basis. But until now, I’ve had to keep a lot of that on a corporate level. With The Raw Truth, I can just be me. I can lay back with old friends as well as connect with new ones. Cars bring people together and I’m fortunate to be able to show the world how and why.”
Kicking off the eve of the Los Angeles Auto Show, easily one of the hottest tickets in North America and, not to mention, one of the sexiest auto shows in the world, Kimatni promises to share The Raw Truth on the hottest rides, the latest automotive trends as well as the flash and sizzle of L.A.
