D S Simon Productions syndicated special “The Best of CES” will be airing in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and nationally on DirecTV in early March. The Best of CES is hosted by Mario Armstrong, Digital Lifestyle Expert and 2011 Emmy Award winner for “Best TV Show Host.” “I’m really excited to host the show. CES is an incredible event. It’s great to be able to take viewers behind the curtain and give them an early look at great new technology,” said Armstrong.


The 30-minute long celebrity-packed special features segments covering the big stories of CES and was sponsored by Intel and Lowe’s who were featured within the program. “High-quality syndicated program is a unique opportunity for organizations to not only get the distribution in key markets but take advantage of significant opportunities to extend their brands through social media,” said Douglas Simon, President & CEO at video communications firm D S Simon Productions which developed the program.

In this segment, Mario Armstrong features key innovations from Intel including a broad new range of Ultrabook convertibles, detachables and tablets with all-day battery life. Intel Ambassador Mike Fard was featured. “This is an exciting time at Intel and in the world of technology in general. The landscape is evolving rapidly and the new technologies we highlighted at CES showcase some of the new ways in which people can interact with their PCs and mobile devices. Whether by touch, voice, facial recognition, and hand gestures, there are new and innovative ways in which to get work done and to have fun.”

The Best of CES will air on March 9, 2013 nationally on DirecTV, channel 224 at 10:00pm; WWOR in New York at 6:00am and WCIU in Chicago at 6:00am. The show will air in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30am.
