    Vanna White is opening up about her future on "Wheel of Fortune" ahead of Pat Sajak's final episode as the longtime host.

    A year ago, Sajak announced that he would be retiring from the beloved game show after its 41st season, which comes to a close on June 7.

    When asked by TV Insider about her longtime co-worker's retirement, White said: "I can't describe how I feel. I feel happy for him. I can't imagine doing the show without him after 41 years. I sum it up as [like] reading a good book. It always has to end."

    She added, "This has been the best book I've ever read."

    White said she loves Sajak "like a brother" and that the two "will be friends forever."

    One thing that won't last forever, though, is her time on "Wheel of Fortune."

    White has signed a contract for two more seasons alongside incoming host Ryan Seacrest, and admits she doesn't know what the future holds for her beyond that.

    "When I heard that Pat was retiring, I thought maybe I should retire too. But I'm not ready!" she said.

    "We'll see toward the end of those two years how I feel," White continued, who first joined the show in 1982. "I thank God after all these years that I still love my job."
