Pat Sajak’s Farewell Message To ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Viewers In Final Episode


Pat Sajak has bid farewell to “Wheel of Fortune” fans, expressing gratitude to the TV audience “for allowing me into your lives” for 41 seasons as host of the syndicated game show.

In a poignant video ending Friday’s season finale, Sajak addressed the TV audience during his final spin of the wheel.

“Well, the time has come to say goodbye,” he said. “It’s been an incredible privilege to be invited into millions of homes night after night, year after year, decade after decade. And I’ve always felt that privilege came with the responsibility to keep this daily half-hour a safe place for family fun. No social issues, no politics, nothing embarrassing, I hope. Just a game.”

Sajak remarked that “Wheel of Fortune,” with its global reach, became more than a game. It became an event “where families came together along with friends and neighbors and entire generations,” Sajak said. “What an honor to have played even a small part in all of that. Thank you for allowing me into your lives.”

On June 6, his longtime co-host Vanna White gave a tearful farewell to Sajak in her own video, saying, “I love you, Pat.” White will continue on “Wheel of Fortune.” Ryan Seacrest will take over as host in September.

During his farewell, Sajak thanked the “Wheel of Fortune” crew, including his daughter Maggie Sajak, who works as the show’s social correspondent. He concluded by thanking his four-decade show partner, White, whom he called “my professional other half.” The duo have been friends both on and off the show for over forty years.

In Pat Sajak’s final “Wheel of Fortune” episode, the show began by revisiting Sajak’s first episode from Dec. 28, 1981, when he, then an unknown Los Angeles TV weatherman, took over the show, which was on NBC in daytime, from Chuck Woolery.

The clip ended with Sajak, in a suit, walking onto the chandelier-adorned set arm in arm with White, wearing a dazzling over-the-shoulder gown. “Wow, I’m all grown up,” Sajak said, reflecting on the throwback clip. “Way grown up. Thanks for the memories.”

During the word puzzle games, Sajak even took a rare turn at the famed wheel, which the three contestants spun to determine how much money they were playing for.

Although Sajak will officially stay with “Wheel of Fortune” for three years as a consultant, fans can still watch him this summer in “Wheel of Fortune” reruns.
