“I want this job. … I think it would be a lot of fun,” Goldberg said during her recent appearance as host of The View.
Sajak announced earlier this week that his upcoming 41st season of Wheel will be his last.
A guest appearance on “The View” by “Jeopardy!” host Ken Jennings prompted Goldberg to express her interest in the soon-to-be-vacated “Wheel” post.
Jennings was asked about his reaction to Sajak’s announcement, and View co-host Joy Behar agreed, “Whoopi wants that job.”
Goldberg didn’t shy away from the comment and openly championed the performance. Behar joked that she and another View panelist, Sara Haines, could take on Vanna White’s job of revealing the letters in the puzzles.
Goldberg has game show experience, deadline noted. She produced and starred in the 1998 reboot of Hollywood Squares.
