He added, “It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months. Many thanks to you all. (If nothing else, it’ll keep the clickbait sites busy!)”

“I was very lucky in that I always knew that I wanted to be in broadcasting,” the host said in a statement on the “Wheel of Fortune” website.
“My early heroes were people like Arthur Godfrey, Dave Garroway, Steve Allen and, especially, Jack Paar. They helped shape what a television personality was, paving the way for so many others.”
It’s currently unclear who will takeover his spot, but Internet chatter has suggested his daughter, country singer, Maggie Sajak, could fill his shoes. She recently stepped in for Vanna White during a series switch-up with “Jeopardy!”
