The new Wheel of Fortune presenter has been chosen, and he or she is one of the most recognizable faces on television: Ryan Seacrest, the veteran American Idol host, and former Live! “I will be taking the wheel together with Kelly and Ryan.”
The announcement of Pat Sajak’s retirement as host, which will finish with the current season in 2024, came barely a week earlier.
According to two people with knowledge of the strategy, the New York Times reported that officials at Sony Pictures Television had selected Seacrest to serve as host. The unnamed sources reportedly said that Vanna White, whose deal expires the following year, is in talks to remain on the program as co-host.
