I’m not a big Wheel of Fortune fan myself (the whole not being able to see thing makes it kinda hard to solve the puzzles), but I know a lot of people who are plus I often catch the end of Wheel before Jeopardy starts so I’ve seen a good bit of it.
One of the things I do like about the show is announcer Charlie O’Donnell. Over the years he’s become such a familiar voice, plus I have a soft spot in my heart for announcers who actually sound like announcers and make it seem easy.
Sadly, Charlie hasdiedat the age of 78.
I’m sure whoever replaces him will be fine and I’ll get used to it, but Wheel of Fortune will never quite be the same. It’s funny how even if you don’t religiously watch or listen to something parts of it can still creep into your routine. Charlie was like that for me. I’ll miss him.
