Pat Sajak Already Has a New Job And Yup, It’s in Michigan
Don't worry about Pat Sajak. The longtime game show host already has a new gig lined up after he retires from Wheel, and yes, it's right here in Michigan.
Pat Sajak announced last week that he'll be retiring from Wheel of Fortune after next season, sparking rumors that several well-known personalities like Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Seacrest, and LeVar Burton may have a shot at taking over Wheel duties.
Chairman of a College in Michigan
Upon retiring from Wheel, Sajak will segue into the role of Chairman of Hillsdale College, a conservative liberal arts school here in Michigan. Sajak has been a longtime member of Hillsdale College's board and has served as its vice president since 2003.
About Hillsdale College
The school is located in Hillsdale, Michigan, about 70 miles southwest of Ann Arbor. Its undergrad enrollment is about 1,500 students.
According to the school's website, "Hillsdale College is a small, Christian, classical liberal arts college in southern Michigan that operates independently of government funding."
Emily Slack is the Executive Director of Media Relations and Communication at Hillsdale College. She tells The New York Post that Hillsdale College has already benefited from Sajak's wit and intellect.
“Hillsdale College is fortunate to have an even closer relationship with Mr. Sajak. Since 2019, we have benefited from his wisdom, intellect, and good humor as chairman of Hillsdale’s board of trustees," she said. "We look forward to continuing our important work together."
According to Decider, Sajak will stay on Wheel's payroll for three years as one of the show's consultants.
