Ford Splits With TV Pitchman Mike Rowe

Known for his casual, laid-back charm, Rowe was the face of Ford cars, trucks and service for seven years in TV spots created by WPP Group’s Team Detroit. “We decided after a great association with Mike Rowe for several years that it was time to move in a new direction,” said a Ford spokesman. “We are no longer working together.”
