Tic Tac Dough

This Trivia TV Show ran from 1978 to 1986 and is the first evening game show I remember watching. A man named Wink (a perfect name for a game show host) was the key figure in this daily half hour trivial pursuit. There was a second host whom took over in 1985 but we won’t mention him. This show also had four announcers including Jonny Gilbert. This is the show I watched with my parents and out smarted them often. (I was a procoisios young pup.) It has a lot of memories for me. I saw it as a precursor to Jeopardy for both game shows were trivia based and had tiny blue squares with the questions ad answers on them. The major difference is only one has a Dragon that will ruin your day in the bonus round. Grade TTD

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
