Pat Sajak underwent emergency surgery for a blocked intestine last week. Everything seems to have gone well, but Vanna White will host “Wheel of Fortune” while Sajak recovers.
White taped her first episodes on Friday and they’ll begin airing starting December 9th. She’s filled in as host once before when Sajak had laryngitis in 1996. They’ve co-hosted the show since 1983.
Our taping on Thursday was canceled because host Pat Sajak underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine. 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. pic.twitter.com/09zYOCE4hL
