Pat Sajak 'Excited' for Ryan Seacrest to Take Over 'Wheel of Fortune' Hosting Role With Vanna White

After an astonishing 41-season run, the TV personality, who has become the face of the TV program for four decades, has officially passed the show hosting baton to Ryan.

AceShowbiz - In a highly anticipated promo video, Pat Sajak, the face of "Wheel of Fortune" for over four decades, officially welcomed the show's new host, Ryan Seacrest, who will begin his hosting duties this fall. This monumental change marks the end of an era for the beloved game show, which has been a mainstay in American households since Sajak took over the reins in 1981.

"I'm excited for Ryan as I know he'll enjoy meeting the players and getting to know the audience at home," Sajak said in the video, sharing his enthusiasm about Seacrest stepping into his shoes. He highlighted the show's universal appeal, noting, "People love this show. They go and see us every day and spend a half hour with us and watch with the whole family."

Seacrest, an acclaimed television presenter, responded to Sajak's warm words with admiration. "It's such a part of people's lives," he reflected, acknowledging the show's deep-rooted presence in daily routines across the nation.

The heartfelt transition included Sajak's commendation of his long-time co-host, Vanna White, calling her unparalleled in her role. "You're never going to find a better job, and you're never going to find a better co-host," Sajak declared. White, who has signed on for two more years, will continue her iconic role, providing continuity as the show enters a new chapter.

Sajak also delivered a touching farewell directly to viewers during his final episode on June 7, outlining how "Wheel of Fortune" has transcended being just a game show. "It's been an incredible privilege to be invited into millions of homes night after night, year after year, decade after decade," he said, emphasizing the show's impact on family bonding and educational value. "Thank you for allowing me into your lives," he concluded, expressing gratitude for his memorable journey.
