Manhattan Exhibit Celebrates 35 Years Of ‘Wheel of Fortune’
While Wheel of Fortune began in 1975 as a daytime show on NBC along with Susan Stafford and Chuck Woolery, this exhibit is meant as a celebration to the syndicated edition with Pat and Vanna that has been on a roll since 1984.
“Wheel” executive producer Harry Friedman said;
The viewers think of them as friends and one of the most satisfying and heartwarming things to watch is people’s faces when Pat and Vanna enter the studio,
And while it costs $250 to buy a vowel on the show, admission to the exhibit, that is open Wednesdays through Sundays, is free.
