Whoopi Goldberg has thrown her name into the hat when it comes to replacing Pat Sajak as “Wheel of Fortune” host.

Earlier this week, Sajak announced that he will be retiring from the game show after a 41-season run. “Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last,” he tweeted. “It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months. Many thanks to you all.”

Although names like Ryan Seacrest and Sajak’s daughter, Maggie Sajak, have been thrown around to replace the legendary host, Whoopi Goldberg placed her bid during an episode of “The View”

The cast of “The View”welcomed Jeopardy host, Ken Jennings, as a guest to discuss the future of “Wheel of Fortune.” When members of the cast asked Jennings who he thinks could replace Sajak, Goldberg chimed in and said “I want that job! I think it’d be lots of fun.”

Goldberg has just what it takes to be the host of “Wheel of Fortune,” as she has also had prior game show experience. From 1998 to 2004, she appeared as the center square on “Hollywood Squares.”

Whoopi Goldberg isn’t the only Black woman who would be fit for the job. There are a plethora of women who have hosted the game show that can easily shut down the house when it comes to a historic show like “Wheel of Fortune.”

Here are some Black women who have what is takes to be the show’s next host.
