There’s good news for fans of Pat Sajak and Vanna White. The Wheel of Fortune hosts have signed on to continue hosting the show at least through 2024. Now, Pat has also signed on to be a consulting producer of the show. Wheel of Fortune is heading into its 39th season.
The drama over at Jeopardy! has also impacted Wheel of Fortune. Mike Richard was a producer on Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. He was supposed to become the next permanent host but after lawsuits and an offensive podcast were uncovered, he stepped down from all of the roles.

The new season of Wheel of Fortune also has a few other exciting announcements. This year marks the 10th anniversary for Jim Thornton, the announcer. Pat’s daughter Maggie has also signed on as the Social Correspondent on Wheel of Fortune‘s website and social media pages.
The game itself is also changing up a bit. The set and music have been changed slightly for a more modern feel. The “Final Spin” is going away and more money will be available to win. It all sounds very exciting! Are you ready for a new season of Wheel of Fortune?
