“I feel happy for him; I can’t imagine doing the show without him after 41 years,” Vanna said. “I sum it up as [like] reading a good book. It always has to end. This has been the best book I’ve ever read” (via TV Insider).

As for sticking around on Wheel of Fortune, Vanna said that she will be there for at least the next two years, which her new contract is for. “When I heard that Pat was retiring, I thought maybe I should retire too. But I’m not ready! We’ll see toward the end of those two years how I feel,” she said. “I thank God after all these years that I still love my job.”
