CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - “Wheel of Fortune” tweeted out a bittersweet announcement regarding their 73-year-old host, Pat Sajak, on Friday.

Sajak had to undergo emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine, leading to the cancellation of Thursday’s taping, according to the show’s representatives.

Thankfully, show representatives confirmed Sajak’s procedure was a success, and he is “resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work."

Taping reportedly resumed on Friday with Vanna White stepping in as the host.
