These days, it looks like Wheel of Fortune is a family affair! Pat Sajak’s daughter Maggie Sajak recently revealed a fun bonus that comes with working alongside her game show host father.
Maggie Shares Benefits of Working With Dad Pat Sajak
“Yes, we do carpool together,” Maggie captioned a photo of herself and Pat. She’s sporting a white miniskirt, a light blue button-down shirt, and nude strappy heels, while her dad is wearing one of his usual snappy suits.
Fans loved the picture of father and daughter. “I’m so excited Maggie! Hope to see more of you on social media!” one person wrote. Another joked, “So who chooses the music to listen to in the car?”
From Country Music To Law School, Maggie Has Done It All
Maggie is currently working on Wheel of Fortune as a social correspondent, but she has also joined the game show in a different capacity. While Pat was recovering from surgery in January of 2020, Vanna White took over his hosting duties and Maggie took over as the letter-turner.
She’s also a country artist. Maggie released her first single, “First Kiss,” in 2011. One of her songs was featured in an episode of Sweet Home Alabama. Maggie has a lot on her plate—her careers in music and television notwithstanding; she graduated from Princeton University and is currently attending law school.
