During the 10 o’clock hour of his August 12th show, The Automotive Edge show host Kurt Chase announced that David El Attrache retired from his position as General Manager of Norm Reeves Honda Superstore North Richland Hills.
The Automotive Edge
And, uh, we want to give a special shout out to David El Attrache. David's been over there for over 20 years as general manager and today's his last day. And, uh.”
You know, David, uh, has been in this business for over 35 years. And you know what he was before he was the general manager of North Richland Hills?”

We love David. Good, good, good people. We wish you the best on your next adventure in life. Whatever… hopefully it's enjoying a hammock“

His retirement was something that David El Attrache did not disclose to his own audience during the August 12th broadcast of KLIF Wheels. Disclosure is essential in these matters, as such allows for the audience to scrutinize recommendations of vehicles and dealerships for bias. So, it is questionable to have learned of this development from a competitor.
On the topic of competition, the two shows run in direct competition with each other every Saturday morning, now for the full four hours. On August 5th, The Automotive Edge added a fourth hour to its broadcast. The first two hours (8AM-10AM) broadcast on KFXR 1190 AM. The last two hours (10AM-12PM) broadcast on KEGL FM 97.1.
As to how the departure affects the future of the Wheels’ show, one might make a prediction based upon what unfolded from a similar past event. Last year, Wheels’ host John Ingram left Norm Reeves Subaru Rockwall. When Ingram’s departed Norm Reeves, the apparently pending sponsorship of Wheels by his former employer was abandoned.
To conclude, Outside Automotive now
picks Norm Reeves Honda Superstore North Richland Hills as the next most likely
sponsor to drop Wheels. Outside Automotive would applaud that development; if
for no other reason than typing the dealership’s name of “Norm Reeves Honda
Superstore North Richland Hills” has become way too burdensome.
And with that, Outside Automotive was able to obtain the music video that
David El Attrache allegedly used to announce his career transition to his Norm
