Pat Sajak, 75, entering his 40th season as "Wheel of Fortune" host, recently said "the end is near" for his time on the show.
"In most television shows by this time, you would have said, 'That's probably enough,' but this show will not die," Sajak said. "It appears I may go before the show."
"Years go by fast. We're getting near the end. It's been a long [time]. We're not gonna do this for another 40 years. The end is near."
"It's an honor to have been in people's living rooms for that long. People were out there welcoming us. We're happy and proud."
Sajak and longtime co-host Vanna White made similar comments when interviewed by Entertainment Tonight last year.
"We're certainly closer to the end than the beginning," Sajak said last year. "I'd like to leave before people tune in and look at me and say, ‘Ooh, what happened to him?'"
"I wouldn't bet on seeing us in, like, 10 years, I would say. Is that fair [to say]?," he asked White. "Probably, yes," White replied.
It was reported in 2016 that Sajak and White were making $15 million and $10 million per year from the show, respectively.
