Pat Sajak’s retirement announcement on June 12 created speculation about who would succeed him, with Seacrest emerging as a top candidate.

Sajak and White have been a fixture of the Emmy-winning game show for four decades, making them one of the longest-serving hosts in the game show category.

Seacrest has received Emmy nominations and awards for his exceptional work. In addition to his hosting roles, Seacrest is the host and producer of a popular morning radio show and has appeared on various award show specials.

Wheel of Fortune,” a game show similar to “Hangman,” features contestants spinning a wheel to earn money by solving word puzzles.
