Pat Sajak Shares His Post-‘Wheel of Fortune’ Plans

Pat Sajak Reveals Post-Wheel of Fortune Plans: Retirement, Reflection, and Crossword Puzzles

Pat Sajak, the iconic host of Wheel of Fortune, has announced his retirement after an incredible 41 seasons with the game show. His final episode, which also serves as the season finale, is set to air on Friday, June 7. Fans have been eagerly anticipating what Sajak plans to do post-Wheel of Fortune, and he recently shared his retirement plans with his daughter, Maggie Sajak, a social media correspondent for the show, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“I’m perfectly happy if it just means that I’ll continue with my crossword puzzles and play with grandchildren. Hint hint hint, no pressure,” Sajak teased of his retirement plans. He also reflected on his time with the show, saying, “Somewhere along the line, we became more than a popular show. We became part of the popular culture. And more importantly, we became part of people’s lives. And, that’s been awfully gratifying.”

Sajak’s departure will mark the end of an era, as he took over the hosting gig in 1981 from former host Chuck Woolery. Throughout his tenure, Sajak earned an impressive 19 Daytime Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Game Show Host.

Following Sajak’s retirement, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is set to take over the role. Seacrest expressed his admiration for Sajak, calling him a legend and sharing his excitement for the opportunity to host such a beloved show.

Despite Sajak’s retirement, one familiar face will still be sticking around – Vanna White. White, who joined the show in 1982, has been a staple alongside Sajak and will continue her role as the show’s co-host.

As fans bid farewell to Sajak’s time on Wheel of Fortune, they can look forward to seeing what the future holds for the beloved host and the show itself. With new beginnings on the horizon, the legacy of Wheel of Fortune is sure to live on in the hearts of viewers for years to come.
