Want to get your hands on the hottest new gadgets at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)?

Steve Kruschen, known to millions of television viewers as Mr. Gadget, has teamed up with mobile television network GoTV to deliver the latest news from CES directly to consumers on their mobile phone handsets and wireless devices.

"The annual Consumer Electronics Show is the ultimate gadget-fest and GoTV is pleased to have Steve Kruschen reporting directing from the floor. As such, Mr. Gadget and GoTV become the only source for original made-for-mobile wireless reports from CES," says Patrick Perez, VP of News and Entertainment, GoTV Networks.

For more than two decades, Kruschen has been checking out consumer electronics, gadgets and new technology for CBS, CNN, CNBC, NBC, The Weather Channel, plus dozens of television stations in major U.S. cities. Mr. Gadget is the guy who tries it out for consumers before they buy it.

“Every day throughout the show, mornings, afternoons and even some evenings, I’ll be on the prowl roaming around looking for the best of what’s at CES, as usual, and in particular, the unusual and different,” says Kruschen.

According to Kruschen, “Fresh Gear,” his CES show reports, will be available to consumers over their mobile wireless devices within hours after shooting at CES thanks to the latest in video production and mobile wireless technology. CES is the world's largest annual tradeshow for consumer technology and America's largest annual tradeshow of any kind.

“Now with GoTV, there’s no need to wait for the evening news or even to sit down in front of a television set,” says Kruschen.

“This will be a first,” says Kruschen. “As the hottest new gadgets are being introduced at CES, I’ll be putting them in right into consumers’ hands thanks to the latest in wireless technology and GoTV.”

A contributor for “Consumer’s Digest,” Kruschen lives in Southern California with his wife and three children — batteries not included!
