Vanna White is cashing in big as she just signed a huge “Wheel of Fortune” contract worth millions of dollars.
Vanna White Signs New Contract For ‘Wheel of Fortune’
White has just signed a two-year contract extension to continue as co-host of the ABC game show through the 2025-26 season, per The Hollywood Reporter. This new contract takes her two years into co-hosting alongside the new host of the show Ryan Seacrest, who will take over for long-time host Pat Sajak in fall 2024.
Although the specific details of the contract remain under wraps, we know White is getting a big payout after she previously spoke out about her salary demands. Several reports state that there is a “substantial pay increase” in the new deal, from the $3 million per year she was making for nearly 2 decades. Shockingly, she had not gotten a raise for 18 years.
Vanna’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, was in on what is being described as a “very difficult negotiation” with Sony. But, it pays to have the best lawyer in town.
The popular game show “Wheel of Fortune” first began its run as a daytime series on NBC, debuting in 1975.
Six years later, in 1981, “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak stepped in alongside Vanna White to replace former host Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford. Today, the two still host the game show as it airs on ABC.
Sajek and White have been hosting the show together ever since, going on 39 years now, as millions of contestants have come on to try and solve enough word puzzles to get to the bonus round and spin the wheel. However, Pat Sajak will be stepping down after more than 40 years of hosting “Wheel of Fortune.”
