<p> Tonight, I speak with my childhood hero, a legend in local New York children's television programming, Sonny Fox! Sonny impacted the minds of many youths back when he was the host of Wonderama on WNEW in New York, introducing guests like Senator Robert F. Kennedy to kids like me. He's now the author of a wonderful new book, "But You Made The Front Page!" </p>

Sonny Fox, a war veteran/POW, journalist, TV host and TV producer, talks about life, celebrities, politicians, and everyone in-between in his new book, "But You Made the Front Page!: Wonderama, War and a Whole Bunch of Life."
Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mr. Fox found his calling in radio as a freshman college student at NYU. At 18, Fox began his service in the U.S. Army during World War II, where he was captured and held as a prisoner of war in Germany. He survived to talk about the experience.
Fox also worked as a war correspondent in Korea, and later became the vice president of NBC-TV and Chairman of the Board of the Television Arts and Sciences.

Join Jay, Matt, and the IWS Radio team as they recap their Thanksgiving holiday, and break down all of the drunken and dysfunctional family drama that went down, as well as the crimes against humanity that transpired on Black Friday. And perhaps...
Matt-Man may be flying solo this week, because Jayman may not make it to the studio as an ice storm has leveled her icy grip upon the Emerald of the Midwest that is Omaha, NE which may force Jayman to be stranded for days that feel like weeks.
We will also provide you with bad music, a holiday message of hope and inspiration from Dead Tammy Tibbles, take your calls at 661.244.9852, and kick off the holiday season and War on Christmas with all of the comedic genius you demand, but thankfully do not expect.
So join us for some holiday fun and frivolity as IWS Radio presents: Thanksgiving Leftovers and Holiday Appetizers.
Growing up in New York I was exposed to theatre differently by my parents. My mother took us to Broadway shows. And my dad was more off Broadway. I enjoyed them all. But when my dad took me to see "The Me Nobody Knows" I was twelve. Seeing Irene Cara up on stage made me want to be up there. As a young adult my friends and I continued to go to plays and off beat films. That was our past time going to shows and out to eat.
I always wanted to be a dancer and took some lessons but I had to find another way to express myself. I got interested in acting at a time in my life when I needed to find myself and to feel grounded. I started taking classes at HB Studios. It was scary and exhilarating at the same time. I found something that I keep trying to conquer.
I'm finding myself. I found that I'm best at playing women who have a chip on their shoulder and a world class attitude but would like nothing better than put both of those aside.
I have been in some local films and plays. We just finished the 2015 Women's Voices Theater Festival. I was in two plays "A Matter of Worth" by Marcia E Cole and "For the Love of Oscar" by Hope Lindsay-Price.
By day I am a broadcast technician for Fox TV and as of date the Business Agent for our IATSE local.
And a wife , mother and grandmother.
