Vanna White's 'Wheel of Fortune' Hosting Gig Will Start Airing Next Week

Vanna White will fill in for Pat Sajak.

The 62-year-old co-host of the long-running Wheel of Fortune stepped up to host the show while Pat Sajak recovered from successful emergency intestinal surgery, starting with the “Secret Santa Holiday Giveaway” episode on Monday (December 9).

Pat was forced to cancel back in November while undergoing surgery, and the Vanna episodes will begin airing next week.

“The Wheel of Fortune 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 a host,” the show confirmed last month.

“Even though the shows I missed haven’t started airing (they begin next week), I’m happy to say that I’m back in the studio taping today. It’s been four weeks since my ‘episode,’ but it feels longer. Nice to be back,” Pat Sajak wrote on Thursday (December 5).
