With the buzz around “nepo babies” dominating conversations lately, we thought this story would be quite fitting.
Maggie Sajak, daughter of famed Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, has solidified her presence on the popular game show in recent years. Her journey on the show began when she temporarily filled in for Vanna White, taking over letter-turning duties while White assumed hosting responsibilities in place of her father during his emergency surgery in 2020.
Since then, Maggie has transitioned into a social correspondent role, offering viewers behind-the-scenes glimpses into the inner workings of the iconic game show.
This week, Maggie finds herself immersed in the excitement of Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas, where she is covering the highly anticipated event for Inside Edition. Her coverage spans from exclusive interviews to insightful behind-the-scenes reports.
Recently, Maggie delighted fans by sharing a heartwarming throwback photo on her Instagram, commemorating her father’s birthday. The image captures a sweet moment from the late ’90s, featuring a toddler Maggie holding her father’s hand as they stroll across the Wheel of Fortune set.
Pat Sajak has been synonymous with Wheel of Fortune since its nighttime debut in 1983, and he also hosted the daytime version from 1981 to 1989. However, it was announced that Ryan Seacrest will succeed Sajak as the host of the show starting with its 42nd season in 2024.
