Wheel of Fortune is the longest-running syndicated game show in the US. Over 6,000 episodes of the show have aired, and in 2008, TV Guide named it the “top rated syndicated series”.
The show works similarly to hangman– contestants must solve word puzzles by guessing letters that constitute an entire word or phrase.
The show first aired on NBC from 1975 to 1999. Then, it moved to CBS for two years before returning to NBC. Along with changes networks a number of times, the show has seen a variety of hosts, from Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford to Pat Sajak and Vanna White.
Chuck Woolery, the show’s first host, was involved in the original incarnation of Love Connection, along with Scrabble, and Lingo.
Woolery, also a musician, was part of a trio called The Bordermen in the 1960s. He was also part of the duo The Avant-Garde, who signed with Columbia Records. With Columbia, he released five records as a solo artist.
Pat Sajak and Vanna White currently host the show. The latter has been hosting since 1982. Apart from her hosting work, White has appeared in projects like Gypsy Angels, Midnight Offerings, Graduation Day, Looker, and Star of the Family.
