Creator, Executive Producer & Host, Motorz TV

Introduced in 2008, Motorz is the fastest growing nationally televised Automotive Improvement® series of its kind. Unlike other automotive shows that skip important steps during commercial breaks, use expensive tools, or perform feats that would be impossible for the average viewer, Motorz shows viewers how to confidently and properly maintain a vehicle and install aftermarket accessories with simple step-by-step instructions in a home garage environment.

In each episode, Duke shows viewers what tools to use, and how and why to use them. He also offers advice regarding potential challenges along the way, and always provides information on important safety precautions. Whether it’s installing bolt-on products, wiring electronics, rebuilding an engine, or detailing the vehicle, Motorz empowers viewers by offering a realistic look at what lies beneath the installation instructions. Now in its seventh season, Motorz reaches more than 100 million television households in the U.S. and Canada via cable and broadcast television, and many more via Internet distribution, video-on-demand and mobile access including iTunes, YouTube, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and more.
