"We're certainly closer to the end than the beginning," Sajak. shared. "I'd like to leave before people tune in and look at me and say, 'Ooh, what happened to him?'"

"I wouldn't bet on seeing us in, like, 10 years, I would say," he added, before asking White, "Is that fair [to say]?"

“Probably, yes,” White replied.

Sajak and Whites spoke further about the family-like bond they have formed after nearly four decades of working side-by-side.

"We've been together for like 38 years and he's like my brother," White said. "He's funny. I mean, we could finish each other's sentences if we wanted to. We know each other that well."

The two recently signed a contract guaranteeing them to be part of the show through 2024. Sajak also added consulting producer to his resume.

“Wheel of Fortune” went through a bumpy shake-up when Mike Richards was ousted from his role as executive producer at “Wheel of Fortune,” in addition to his roles as host and executive producer of “Jeopardy!” following resurfaced controversial comments from the past.

Richards ended his role as host of “Jeopardy!” but also announced that he is no longer executive producing the either popular game shows.

Sajak and White are currently hosting the spinoff show "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune."
