BJ Killeen

The Drive with Alan Taylor

Saturday 7-9am PST, 10am-12pm EST


BJ Killeen, one of only a handful of female automotive journalists in the country, is well known in the industry. The former Road Test Editor of Motor Trend magazine now freelances for numerous automotive websites such as CarBuzzard.com, HerHighway.com, and others. In addition, BJ is the online Road Test Editor for Driver’s Talk Radio, and is a regular contributor to The Drive with Alan Taylor radio show on the ERNLive network.

 

After receiving her degree in English from UCLA, BJ joined the staff of Motorcyclist magazine, where she cultivated a fondness for motorcycles and dirt bikes. She then moved on to Motor Trend magazine, where she worked her way up to become the road test editor, and was responsible for writing many monthly columns, road tests and comparison tests, as well as voting in the prestigious Car, Truck, and Import Car of the Year competitions.

 

A big racing fan, her love of automobiles started early, having been exposed to the field through her father, who owned an assortment of collector classics, such as a ’61 Austin-Healey 3000, a ’641⁄2 Mustang, and other vehicles. BJ, a native Southern Californian, is married to automotive photographer Scott Killeen and lives in Sherman Oaks, California, and also is a two-year past president of the Motor Press Guild, the organization that represents almost 900 automotive journalists and industry representatives across the country.
