USM seeking 2nd win to end season on a streak

HATTIESBURG Miss. (WDAM) - One, some say, is the loneliest number. Saturday, at M.M. Roberts Stadium, two football teams will be looking to change that.

How BMW reportedly got approval from Citroen to use the XM name

Ever since rumors started to emerge about BMW M’s flagship car adopting the “XM” designation, we began to wonder: Won’t Citroën have a problem with this nameplate? After all, the French automaker used it first back in 1989 for its flagship car it continued to sell until 2000 to make room for the C5. It’s obviously an important nameplate for the company with the double chevron logo for which it still owns the trademark rights.

The Secret Agreement Ensuring BMW Has No Problem Using Citroen’s XM Badge On Super-SUV

The colossal twin nostril grille dominating the front of the super-SUV BMW teased last week ahead of the LA Auto Show wasn’t the only controversial thing about it. Calling the standalone X8-based XM concept raised some eyebrows among folks who remember the wedgy 1990s Citroen sedan of the same name. It’s not like anyone is likely to confuse a 700 hp SUV with a cultish French luxury saloon, but it’s still unusual for one carmaker to directly lift a name from another. Who remembers when Ford sued Ferrari over the use of its truck name on an F1 car?

Tata Nexon Price Hike Nov 2021 Up To Rs 11k – 5 Diesel Variants Discontinued

BMW XM to fight large Porsche SUV coming with plug-in hybrid power

Porsche is allegedly working on a new flagship SUV to slot above the X5-sized Cayenne, according to a new report published by Automotive News.

Spy Photos: G09 BMW XM shows off its design ahead of the unveil

New BMW X6 M with stage 2 kit has Akrapovic exhaust, immense torque

While BMW has given its M-badged SUVs the Competition treatment, it’s a known fact most of the other full-fat M products will be getting even hotter derivatives sooner or later.

The M5 is already offered in a spicy CS flavor, and you can rest assured the M2 coming next year will eventually get more potent editions.

10 Questions with ... Melissa Chase

If you really want to mess with your parents, choose an out-of-state college for a specialty major and then decide on a career that is the complete opposite. I went to Kent State University to major in Sign Language Education…which, as you can imagine, is pretty unhelpful in a career where it’s about the audio experience. I switched majors after my first year and scored an internship with the morning show on WRVQ and drank so much radio Kool-Aid that summer that I knew it was the life I wanted to live. I continued to work part time at WRVQ and WRXL when I was on vacation and, after testing out the waters at MTV for a little bit, I decided to move back to my hometown of Richmond to accept a full-time morning show position on WRVQ. I graduated from the third mic to the co-host position and eventually to name first (as silly as it sounds, that was a massive milestone for women). In addition, I was voice-tracking middays for Clear Channel/iHeart stations across the country including WKCI, WAZR and their XM channel, KISS XM21. In 2009, after some management and staff changes, I chose to cross the street to accept the position of morning show host for then Cox Media’s WURV. From there I became Program Director for three of our stations and worked as Operations Manager (while still doing mornings) for six more years before deciding to choose my next adventure and accept an amazing position at Audacy/ Houston.
