Pat Sajak will end his four-decade run as host of Wheel of Fortune after the 2023-24 season.

“Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last,” Sajak said in a statement Monday. “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!)”

The 76-year-old Sajak’s retirement from hosting — he’ll serve as a consultant to the show for three years after leaving his on-camera role — will mark the end of an era for Wheel of Fortune: He has hosted the syndicated version of the game show since its debut in 1983, and also hosted a daytime edition on NBC from 1981-89. He and Vanna White are among the most enduring hosts of any TV game show in the medium’s history.
