Pat Sajak, the long-time host of “Wheel of Fortune”, announced Monday that his 41st season as host will be his final one.
The time is now. I have decided that my 41st season will begin in September. It has been an amazing ride. I will have more to share in the months ahead. Thank you so much. It will keep clickbait websites busy. Sajak tweeted this on Monday night.
Sajak has been the host of a popular show on television for many generations.
He began hosting the show over four decades ago.
According to PEOPLE, Suzanne Prete said, “As host of Wheel of Fortune Pat has entertained millions of Americans for 40 incredible years.” “We are grateful and proud that Pat has been our host all these years, and we look to celebrate his outstanding career during the upcoming Season. Pat has agreed that he will continue to be a consultant for the show after his final year as host. We are thrilled to keep him close to the Wheel of Fortune Family!
Maggie Sajak, the social correspondent for “Wheel of Fortune”, responded to her father’s post with, “It is so much fun to work with my dad…and I’m looking forward to more fun in Season 41.”
On social media, some people shared their memories of watching the show together with family.
You and Vanna, and Wheel of Fortune together with my Mom (RIP) are some of my most fond memories. “You brought happiness to many,” Carmine Sabia responded to Sajak’s announcement.
“I used watch the show with her after she had a stroke in 1996 (she was 56 at that time). This and Jeopardy were her two favorite shows. Someone else wrote: “Thanks for that.”
