The first version was a daytime show on NBC that debuted on January 6, 1975.

Pat Sajak took over as host from Chuck Woolery in 1981, and Vanna White replaced Susan Stafford as hostess in 1982. The show moved to CBS from 1989 to 1991, then briefly returned on NBC in 1991. The syndicated nightime version began in 1983 and continues to the present day (31st season was 2013-2014).
