Vanna White Bids Emotional Farewell to Pat Sajak Ahead of His Final Show

Vanna White, the beloved co-host of Wheel of Fortune, bid an emotional farewell to Pat Sajak, the show’s host of over 40 years, ahead of his final episode. The heartfelt tribute was aired on Thursday’s episode of the game show, leaving fans and audiences in tears.

In the video segment, White honored Sajak’s work and their friendship, which spanned over four decades. She praised Sajak for making her feel comfortable and confident when she first started on the show, but more importantly, she cherished the memories and milestones they shared outside of the studio.

The duo has been one of television’s most iconic pairs since they started working on Wheel of Fortune together in 1982. They have appeared in over 8,000 episodes together, with Sajak leading the contestants through the game and White famously turning the letters on the puzzle board.

In her emotional farewell, White said:

“As this chapter of our lives is coming to an end, I know you’ll still be close by. You’re like a brother to me, and I consider you a true lifelong friend who I will always adore. I love you, Pat.”

The pair shared a hug on stage after the prerecorded video segment ended, marking the end of an era for the beloved game show.

Sajak announced his retirement in June 2023, making the 41st season of the show his last. White extended her contract in September through the 2025-2026 season and will help shepherd Sajak’s replacement, Ryan Seacrest, through his first two seasons at the helm.

Sajak’s final episode aired on Friday, marking the end of an era for Wheel of Fortune. The show has been a staple in American television for decades, and Sajak’s departure will be deeply felt by fans and audiences alike.

In his final episode, Sajak expressed his gratitude to viewers, saying:

“Thank you for allowing me into your lives. It’s been an incredible privilege to be invited into millions of homes, night after night, year after year, decade after decade.”

Sajak’s legacy on Wheel of Fortune will be remembered for years to come, and his friendship with Vanna White will always be cherished by fans of the show.

As the curtains close on Sajak’s final episode, audiences can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia and gratitude for the joy and entertainment he brought into their lives. His farewell marks the end of an era, but his legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of Wheel of Fortune fans everywhere.
