Thursday’s “Wheel of Fortune” taping was canceled as Sajak “underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine,” the tweet said. “He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work. Taping resumed today as scheduled and Vanna White has stepped in as host.”
On Instagram, the “Wheel of Fortune” account shared a holiday-themed set photo featuring White with some iconic Disney characters.
“Vanna steps in as host and Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto join in the fun! Tune in beginning December 9th,” it reads.
Sajak has been hosting the game show since 1983, having recently won the Guinness World Record for longest time hosting the same game show in May of 2019, having hosted for over 35 years.
