Maggie Sajak Considered as Potential Host for “Wheel of Fortune” Amid Pat Sajak’s Retirement

Fans of the iconic game show “Wheel of Fortune” are eagerly suggesting Maggie Sajak as a potential host following her father, Pat Sajak’s announcement of his retirement from the long-running series after over 40 years. Maggie, 28, recently shared a video on Instagram, showcasing her transformation from an all-black look to a vibrant hot pink ensemble in tribute to the “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” movies.

In the comments section of her post, numerous people expressed their hopes for Maggie to take over as the new host or even replace Vanna White, who many anticipated would succeed Pat. One enthusiastic supporter proposed a team effort, with Maggie taking over as the letter turner for Vanna, while Vanna assumes the hosting role.

Maggie has already dabbled in “Wheel of Fortune” appearances, making a guest appearance as the letter turner during a “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” episode in May. Additionally, she has been involved with the show since her childhood, joining her father onstage on various occasions. Since 2021, Maggie has also served as the series’ social correspondent.

Pat Sajak’s time as the beloved host of “Wheel of Fortune” is set to conclude in 2024, with Ryan Seacrest slated to take over as the new emcee. While many fans rooted for Vanna White to succeed Pat, she is currently negotiating for a substantial raise, reportedly aiming for at least half of Pat’s previous paycheck. Insiders argue that White has been an integral part of the show, essentially co-hosting alongside Pat, and deserves a pay increase considering her long-standing contribution to the series.

With Pat’s departure approaching, fans continue to speculate about the future of the show and are hopeful that Maggie Sajak will have a prominent role in “Wheel of Fortune’s” next chapter.
