People, get out your Kleenex. Pat Sajak announced that he is officially retiring from presenting Wheel of Fortune after more than 40 years on television.
On June 12, the seasoned game show host stunned viewers by making an unexpected statement on Twitter.
Pat said in the tweet that he intended to quit following the 2023–2024 season, which is scheduled to start later this fall, and that it had rapidly become popular on the social media network. For him, it’s also a momentous one, as it will be his last Wheel of Fortune presenting gig since he joined in 1981.
