Pat Sajak Has Emergency Surgery And Vanna White Steps In To Host

It's not yet clear how long Sajak will be away from the show or how long White will fill in as host.

Pat Sajak is the title-holder for the longest career as a game show host of the same show for his role with the Wheel of Fortune. Last Thursaday the taping of the show was cancelled because Pat underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine.

Pat is now resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work. Good news for Vanna White - after nearly four decades of being the co-host, she has temporarily stepped into the role of host!

A statement issued by the show said the 73-year-old Sajak is resting comfortably after the successful surgery. 

Taping of the popular game show was paused on Thursday, and resumed Friday with co-host Vanna White at the helm, for shows that will start airing Dec. 9. Vanna hosted some fun holiday guests who go by the names Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto !

It's not yet clear how long Sajak will be away from the show, CBS said, or how long White will fill in as host.

Get well soon Pat!
