I remember Sonny Fox, not from these shows, but from the kids' show Wonderama.

I particularly recall a segment in which kids from the (New York City) audience would come up and dance The Twist. :)

Living in St. Louis, I remember "The Finder." The station is KETC, not KCET. Later he hosted the "$64,000 Challenge," whose big winner, by coincidence, was a man from St. Louis, named Teddy Nadler.
