Derry-Based CT Media Distribution Airing "The Appraisers" on VELOCITY: CT Media Distribution, a division of Chip Taylor Communications, LLC OF Derry, New Hampshire, announced that their program, "The Appraisers" premiered this month on Discovery's Velocity channel. "The Appraisers" is a contemporary automotive reality series that follows three automotive appraisers as they cruise across America in search of often rare, super inviting, and always interesting automotive finds. Featuring Tom Cox - the Classic Car Guy, Chris Ritter - the Car Geek, and Ben Nef - the Vegas High Roller, each episode introduces viewers to passionate characters who make up the auto enthusiast world, and the excitement builds as the appraisers reveal how much each owner’s pride and joy is worth. "The Appraisers" covers it all - antiques, classics, muscle, luxury and exotic cars, old trucks, motorcycles and automotive memorabilia - and each collective episode adds up to a great time for all. 8 x 30-minute episodes in High Definition.
