40 Years Ago: ‘Wheel … Of … Fortune’ [Video]
It was 40 years ago, Jan. 6, 1975, A brash, young Chuck Woolery reached down and spun a giant wheel on the television game show "Wheel of Fortune."
Vanna White was still a 18-year-old bubbly high school student. And Pat Sajak was a part-time DJ in Nashville.
Pat Sajak Loses It. Really.
Pat Sajak has hosted "Wheel of Fortune" for 81 years. That's only strange because he just turned 68 last month, but I digress. He's a TV icon, with thousands of broadcasts under his belt.
