Maggie Sajak, Pat Sajak’s daughter, is a woman of many talents. From singing to briefly taking over for Vanna White as the letter-turner on Wheel of Fortune, Sajak has kept busy since entering adulthood. She’s also modeled. In 2013, Sajak did a photoshoot and interview with Teen Vogue, where she sported various laid-back denim styles.
In the photos, a young Sajak sports a bold denim on denim look. She also mixes it up with punky red and black plaid pants. She paired the pants with a blazer and white button-up, making the outfit both preppy and punk.
In the interview with Vogue, Sajak, who was at Princeton at the time, also talked about her passion for music, saying, “I’ve been singing ever since I can remember. When I started playing guitar, I began taking music more seriously, and it became a real passion for me.”
Where is Maggie Sajak Now?
While Sajak did release some music videos back in 2012 and 2013, it appears she’s now taken a different direction as a young professional. Since that interview in 2013, Maggie Sajak graduated from Princeton. She finished a post-grad program at Columbia and is now in law school. The multitalented woman currently works as an online media correspondent for Wheel of Fortune.
When it comes to her new job with Wheel of Fortune, Maggie Sajak had this to say per their website: “I’m excited about the opportunity to bring an insider’s look at the show with new behind-the-scenes features, interviews, videos and insights. The Wheel of Fortune staff and crew have always been like an extended family, and I’m thrilled to be working with them.”
On top of all the other tasks that come with law school and working as a media correspondent, she’s also been conducting interviews and going live on Wheel of Fortune’s Instagram account.
