Television Personality. Born Arthur Jack Linkletter, he was the son of entertainer Art Linkletter and followed his father into broadcasting. At age 15 he began doing an interview show for CBS Radio, called "Teen Time", and in 1958 he began hosting the NBC-TV prime time quiz show "Haggis Baggis." He went on to host a total of seven TV shows, including "On the Go," "Here's Hollywood," "America Alive!" and "Hootenanny," the 1960's ABC folk music show that was taped before a live audience at a different college campus each week. Besides TV, he also was host for Miss Universe pageants, World's Fair events and major parades. In later years, he was the president of Linkletter Enterprises and presidential appointee to the National Council of the USO.
