Vanna hosted “Wheel of Fortune” alone last night!

37 years ago this week, on December 13, 1982, Vanna White and Pat Sajak started doing “Wheel of Fortune” together.  At the time, the game show aired on NBC Daytime … and the current syndicated version of the show would premiere a few months later on September 19, 1983.  Now, Pat would actually host the show while Vanna would show us the letters that were in the puzzle board.  Now, if you were watching “Wheel of Fortune” last evening on your local station, you may have noticed something a little bit different.  Vanna was hosting the show alone while Pat was recovering from surgery.  Now, Vanna will host the show alone for the next few days … and, then, as we start both a new year and a new decade, things will be back to normal again.

Now, this will not be the first time that Vanna has hosted the show instead of Pat.  In 1996, she hosted the last few minutes of an episode of the show while Pat had laryngitis.  I don’t usually watch the show by myself, but since last night’s episode of the show was a rather interesting one, I decided to watch the first few minutes of the show on WPXI, which is the station that has been carrying “Wheel of Fortune” in Pittsburgh for more than 30 years.  I just watched the first round of the show yesterday evening … and, in my opinion, Vanna did a fantastic job in hosting the program.  Yes, Pat also does a fantastic job in hosting “Wheel of Fortune.”

So, as the next few days go by, we’ll see how the show goes as Vanna fills in for Pat for the next few days or so.  The show will still be fun to watch, nonetheless.  Yes, she also hosted the version of the game that you would play on CD-ROMs … and I remember seeing her host that version of “Wheel of Fortune” several years ago.
