Breaking: Pat Sajak says to retire from ‘Wheel of Fortune’ after next season

LOS ANGELES — Pat Sajak, who hosted the legendary game show “Wheel of Fortune” for more than four decades, has announced plans to step down from his role at the end of the current season. Sajak, 76, has been the host of “Wheel” since 1981, when he took over from Chuck Woolery. Since her debut on the show in 1982, Vanna White and her co-host have established themselves as two of the most well-known personalities in broadcast television history.

On Monday, Sajak said on Twitter: “Well now is the time.” “The time has come”, “I have made the decision that this coming season, which will be our 41st and will start in September, will be my last.” “It was a wonderful race, and I will have more to say in the months to come,” he continued after the previous statement. “Please accept my deepest gratitude. (At the very least, this will keep the sites that rely on clickbait busy!) “After his resignation as host, Sajak is expected to continue working for the show as a consultant for a period of three years. The show sent a statement of gratitude to Sajak via Twitter shortly after Monday’s announcement.

“Thank you so much to the most amazing host in the business. Pat, without you, Wheel of Fortune would never have been what it is today. I can’t wait for the 41st season to be even better than the previous ones! There is no information yet on the search for the show’s next host. In the 2018–19 season, Sajak passed Bob Barker as the game show host with the longest tenure overall, breaking the record previously held by Barker.

Over the show’s four incredible decades of airing, Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak has delighted tens of millions of people across the United States. Suzanne Prete, executive vice president of game shows for Sony Pictures Television, expressed her gratitude and pride in having Pat as the show’s host for all these years. “We are incredibly grateful and proud to have had Pat as our host for all these years, and we look forward to celebrating his outstanding career throughout the coming season,” Prete said.
