Feb. 11, 2015—A special report on issues faced in the collision repair industry continues to be delayed from running on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” program.

The report, which looks into the unlawful practice of insurer steering, improper repairs performed by shops, and the insurance-related litigation that currently plagues the industry, was originally scheduled to appear on Feb. 9.

As of this writing, the show has been rescheduled twice, and is planned to run tonight at 8 p.m. EST.

Billy Walkowiak of Collision Safety Consultants in Belmont, N.C., along with other members of the auto and collision repair industry were interviewed for the episode, outlining and inspecting some of the improper repairs that are becoming more common.

Walkowiak has confirmed with FenderBender that the episode has been postponed from airing for the second time in as many days.
