Sonny Fox: Forty Years in Television: A Conversation with Whoopi Goldberg

Sep 24, 2012
6:30 PM ET
New York
   






The legendary career of Sonny Fox, the beloved host of Wonderama, spans the history of television. He will discuss his extraordinary life in media as performer, executive, and consultant to the state department with one of his biggest fans, Whoopi Goldberg. Whoopi has stated: “Two things I had to do on Sunday, go to church and watch Sonny Fox.” During his tenure on Wonderama, Sonny was called the foster father of five million children, charming everyone in the tri-state area. The ever-youthful Sonny will screen highlights from his career, which also included hosting the CBS series Let’s Take a Trip and The $64,000 Challenge, as well as sign copies of his new book, But You Made the Front Page!: Wonderama, Wars, and a Whole Bunch of Life. Several surprise guests will also drop in to tribute Sonny.

To attend a private dinner party with the panel, join us for PALEYAFTERDARK/PALEY100. Call Erin Frederick at 212.621.6622 or email efrederick@paleycenter.org.
