We remember Pat Sajak as our favorite game show host from the American version of Wheel of Fortune. He has notably held the position as of 1981, for which he received 19 nominations for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host, winning three times. Anyway, the news for you is one of his two kids, i.e, his youngest daughter Maggie Sajak has taken on the role of the long-running shows’ social correspondent as it continues for the 39th Season in early 2022.
Maggie seems to be following in her father’s footsteps and when the time comes, the elderly Sajak might just hand over the reins of the show to her.
In the meantime, here’s everything that you have been desperately looking at on the internet about Pat’s natural successor.
Maggie Sajak Salary On Wheel Of Fortune
Like her father, Maggie Sajak has decided to base her career in the field of creative arts.
While her father Pat’s yearly salary for Wheel of Fortune is approximately $15 million, we don’t know of Maggie yet.
However, a hint on her salary would be: according to a ZipRecruiter report as of December 2021, the average annual pay for a Social Media Correspondent in the United States is $48,864, annually.
Maggie has appeared in prestigious magazines such as Teen Vogue in the past and clearly, this is not the only time she has associated herself with Wheel of Fortune. As a one-year-old, she toddled onto the set with her father, and over 20 years later, back when her father was recovering from intestinal surgery, Maggie stepped in for Vanna White on the show so that Vanna could assume the regular hosting role while Pat was out. The job was, however, short-lived for Maggie.
Now, the host’s daughter has managed to find her place within the program’s ranks as their social correspondent.
Elated, Maggie not just took to write about the new job on social media but also told the network she is excited about the opportunity to bring an insider’s look at the show with new behind-the-scenes features, interviews, videos, and insights. She said The Wheel of Fortune staff and crew have always been like an extended family to her. “I’m thrilled to be working with them.”
The only sad news about it is Maggie may not be showing her face on the program with as much frequency as her father. But she will still be taking on a big role in the show’s day-to-day happenings.
