Ryan Seacrest In Early Talks To Replace Pat Sajak On ‘Wheel of Fortune’

Has Ryan Seacrest already found his next big gig?

As previously reported, Ryan Seacrest, 48, made the decision to step away from the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” talk series after 6-years on the program. Following his departure, he released a statement that said,

“Working alongside Kelly over the past six years has been a dream job and one of the highlights of my career. She has been an amazing partner, friend, and confidant, and although we will always be a part of each other’s lives, I will miss our mornings together.”


Ryan Seacrest has still remained booked and busy since he stopped working alongside Kelly Ripa and it seems like he’s about to add another major role to his schedule. According to reports, the famed correspondent is a strong candidate to take over the “Wheel of Fortune” hosting duties. News recently broke that the current host, Pat Sajak, will be retiring at the end of the 41st season.

In a statement, Pat Sajak expressed,

“Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months. Many thanks to you all. If nothing else, it’ll keep the clickbait sites busy!”
