Dirk Fredericks was one of the ABC staff guys, wasn't he? (along with the likes of Chet Gould)
Dirk Fredericks was ABC staff. I don't know anything about the background of Chet Gould, but I've heard that Jim Perry spent some time at WABC, so that would make three game show talents to come out of ABC New York. Then there is Jim Lange who came from ABC San Francisco, but he only did work for ABC television there (Oh My Word and Tennessee Ernie Ford), not radio.

Let us not forget Ralph Paul, announcer of Dotto.

Fred Foy did "$20,000 Pyramid" and "Generation Gap" at ABC.  If you've ever seen "The Lone Ranger" or "The Dick Cavett Show" you've heard his voice.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

He also did the pilot for "King of the Hill"-----for CBS.

Somehow, I don't believe Chet Gould was on staff for any of the networks.
Everybody got to deviate from the norm........

I am not sure about Chet Gould being on staff at the networks, but according to back issues of TV Guide, he did anchor the weeknight 11:10pm news on WABC for a time in 1962-63.
