The day by day gossip: June 27, 2023

We would like to resolve the puzzle: “Seacrest in.” Ryan Seacrest will formally succeed Pat Sajak as host of “Wheel of Fortune.” The information was confirmed in a press release by Seacrest, who mentioned he is “really humbled.” It was a surprisingly quick resolution, particularly in comparison with the “Jeopardy!” succession chaos. After Alex Trebek died in 2020, Sony did not identify his alternative till August 2021, and a kind of replacements, Mike Richards, rapidly needed to step down in shame as a consequence of resurfaced offensive podcast feedback. Sajak, in the meantime, simply introduced his exit from “Wheel of Fortune” on June 12, though he will not be leaving till the top of subsequent season. Vanna White might stick round, although, and Seacrest mentioned he is wanting ahead to working together with her. Different attainable fan-suggested contenders included White herself and Sajak’s personal daughter, Maggie Sajak. However with this alternative, Sony has lastly solved the issue of there not being almost sufficient Ryan Seacrest on tv.
