    "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak had to have emergency surgery, and his longtime co-host Vanna White will fill in for him while he recovers.

    The 62-year-old White stepped in as host when taping resumed Friday for episodes that will air starting Dec. 9.

    The statement says Sajak is resting comfortably and looking forward to returning but does not say how long he is expected to be out or how long White will act as host.
