Whoopi Goldberg is ready to exchange the job with Pat Sajak at Wheel of Fortune. To know the complete matter read the post carefully. Pat Sajak going to Regine as host from the Wheel of Fortune next year. And after knowing that the Sister Act star Whoopi stated on Tuesday 13 June 2023 during an episode of The View, “I want that job,” “I think it would be lots of fun.”
Over it, Cohost Joy Behar respects her emotions and cracks a joke by saying that she can get a new role in the next chapter of the show. “You know what? Sara [Haines] and I could be Vanna White. We’ll take turns walking back and forth!”
When Sajak revealed that his time is going to end with Wheel of Fortune, just one day later she opened her desire to hire her at the place of Sajak. Sajak said during an interview,
“I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months. Many thanks to you all.”
Before this, he also hinted in 2022 by saying that “It’s an honor to have been in people’s living rooms for that long.” “People were out there welcoming us. We’re happy and proud,” he told. At this, the Chicago native said, “may go before the show” gets canceled.
“In most television shows by this time, you would have said, ‘That’s probably enough,’ but this show will not dἰe,” he quipped. Wheel of Fortune was aired in 1975 for the first time and was hosted by Chuck Woolery. After six years in 1981, Sajak replaced Chuck.
“When I started hosting Wheel (with Susan Stafford) on this date 40 years ago, the top 10 TV shows included Dallas, Three’s Company, The Jeffersons, and The Dukes of Hazzard,” he said in December 2021. “Ronald Reagan was in his 1st year as president. Number 1 song: Olivia Newton-John’s ‘Physical.’”

Sajak also respond over it about his friendship with White during an interview at Paley Center for Media in New York City in 2017, “I can’t imagine being up there with someone else.” Now the question is who will replace Sajak better?
“Pat’s a legend. I mean, over 40 years and the price of a vowel has not gone up one penny. Like, nobody controlled inflation like Pat Sajak,” Jennings, 78, joked. “I mean, Jeopardy had its succession crisis. Hopefully, ‘Wheel’s’ got an envelope saying what happens when Pat packs it in.”
