In this edition of the AutomoBuzz we recap yesterday's Valentine surprise that Cars.com is set to acquire Chicago-based automotive retail technology firm Dealer Inspire and its digital advertising agency Launch Digital Marketing (LDM). The acquisition, which is expected to close this month, is the first for Cars.com since it became a stand-alone company after completing its public spinoff from media giant Tegna last June and the first since its 2016 acquisition of DealerRater.

Also in the podcast is Ryan Gerardi's interview with Drive Motors CEO Aaron Krane about his predictions for car sales over President's Day Weekend, and how dealers can take advantage of the holiday push to move more metal "while they sleep."
