Ryan Seacrest is being considered as a potential successor to the iconic game show host Pat Sajak on “Wheel of Fortune.” After announcing his retirement plans for the upcoming season, speculation has been rife regarding who will fill Sajak’s shoes.

Sources familiar with the matter reveal that Sony Group Corp, the owner of “Wheel of Fortune,” is evaluating several candidates for the prestigious hosting position, with Ryan Seacrest being one of them.

Having served as the face of “Wheel of Fortune” since 1981, Pat Sajak took to Twitter to share his retirement intentions, expressing gratitude for the incredible journey and promising to disclose further details in the coming months.

While fans have suggested Maggie Sajak, Pat Sajak’s daughter and the show’s social media correspondent, as a potential replacement—given her occasional fill-in for Vanna White—no final decision has been made. Vanna White, the beloved letter-turner, has not disclosed her plans following Sajak’s departure but has shown support and kind words for her longtime colleague on social media.

As discussions unfold, the possibility of Ryan Seacrest taking over the reins of “Wheel of Fortune” has ignited excitement and anticipation among fans eager to witness the beloved game show’s evolution in its upcoming chapter.
