Vanna White Hosts “Wheel of Fortune” After Pat Sajak Undergoes Emergency Surgery

Vanna White Hosts “Wheel of Fortune” After Pat Sajak Undergoes Emergency SurgeryVanna, I’d like to buy a vowel! <i>Wheel of Fortune</i> letter-turner Vanna White was temporarily promoted to host last week after Pat Sajak was forced to undergo emergency surgery. “The <em>Wheel of Fortune</em> taping on Thursday was canceled because host Pat Sajak underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine,” the show tweeted on Friday. “He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work. Taping resumed today as scheduled, and Vanna White has stepped in as host.” The 73-year-old Sajak has hosted <em>Wheel of Fortune</em> since 1983. In 2019, he was honored by Guinness World Records as the longest-running game show host for the same show, surpassing the record set by <i>The Price Is Right</i> host Bob Barker. It’s not yet known when Sajak will return or when the Vanna White-hosted episodes will air.<br />https://ew.com/tv/2019/11/08/wheel-of-fortune-pat-sajak-emergency-surgery-vanna-white-host/?utm_term=10679CEC-0284-11EA-9733-9C9E4744363C
