TV Legend Sonny Fox Looks Back in his New Memoir
Think children’s television in the 1960s, and you’ll probably remember TV legend Sonny Fox,
who is best known as the host of the long-running children’s TV Sunday-morning marathon "Wonderama." The title of his memoir, But You Made The Front Page!: War, Wonderama And A Whole Bunch Of Life, is a line from his Mother, which illustrates how to flip a negative into a positive. "To understand the title, you gotta either buy the book or come to the event," he said when asked about the unusual title. Sonny was also host for many other programs and an executive and broadcasting consultant, and later formed his own television production company, which produced numerous TV series, including PBS’ “Golden Age of Live TV Dramas” and “Great Performances." Copies of the book, not yet available in stores, will be sold at the talk with signing afterwards.
Co-promoted with the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) -Boston/New England Chapter. Sonny Fox is a former Chairman NATAS.
