LOS ANGELES — A “Wheel of Fortune” taping was canceled Thursday so host Pat Sajak could undergo emergency surgery.

“[Sajak] is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work,” the show said via Twitter.

Taping resumed Friday with Vanna White serving as host.

It is unknown how long White will host the program.

“Wheel of Fortune” airs at 6:30 p.m. weekdays on FOX31.
