Wheel of Fortune

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Wheel-of-Fortune-2Did you know that on this day the syndicated edition of Wheel of Fortune premiered? The show originally started as a (now-defunct) daytime network program in January 1975, but gained its syndicated sister show in 1983 - and that's the version that still leaves viewers shouting random letters at their televisions today.

The show's current hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White started their careers on the daytime network version, but joined the syndicated edition at its premiere and have co-hosted the show ever since. Wheel of Fortune is the longest-running syndicated game show in the United States. Makes you wonder how many checks, cars and Hawaiian vacations have been awarded during that time!Wheel-of-Fortune
