Pat Sajak Celebrates 40 Years on ‘Wheel of Fortune’
You’re not going to believe me when I tell you this, but Pat Sajak is celebrating 40 years as the host of Wheel of Fortune. The legendary host went on Twitter to give out some fun facts about his tenure as host and what was happening when he started back in 1981.
When I started hosting “Wheel” (with Susan Stafford) on this date 40 years ago, the top 10 TV shows included “Dallas,” “Three’s Company,” “The Jeffersons” and “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Ronald Reagan was in his 1st year as president. Number 1 song: Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical.”— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) December 28, 2021
“Happy anniversary Pat you’ll always be one of the greats when it comes to game shows,” said a fan. Another fan wasn’t too happy with the fact that the higher-ups at Wheel didn’t mention that he was celebrating 40 years as host. “This is unacceptable,” said a fan.
WOW! Not one mention of Pat Sajak's 40 year anniversary on last night's Wheel of Fortune??? This is unacceptable. https://t.co/tekPiRWe6t— Jeff 🌊 ☕ 🪴 (@wellsy57) December 29, 2021
