Pat Sajak Sidelined By Emergency Surgery, Vanna White To Host

The longtime Wheel of Fortune letter-turner, who has largely remained silent since taking on the job in 1982, will step into the host role after Pat Sajak had emergency surgery.

Thursday's taping was canceled while the 73-year-old Sajak underwent the successful surgery, the statement said. They share, "He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work".

There's no doubt that Pat Sajak will be back on-set in no time.

The show is apparently filming its holiday-themed episodes, which will air beginning December 9.

Sajak and White have co-hosted the show since the early 1980s. The set was transformed with Christmas décor, with Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck and Goofy all dressed in holiday attire.

Taping was canceled for Thursday and resumed again on Friday with Vanna's assistance.

In a recent PEOPLE article, Vanna White said that she and Sajak had never had a fight after almost four decades of working together. He also suffered laryngitis in 1996, and so Vanna hosted one segment in his absence.

Disclosure: "Wheel of Fortune" is distributed by CBS Television.
