"Our ABC-owned stations have been the local destinations for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! for nearly 30 years," said Rebecca Campbell, president of the ABC Owned Television Stations Group, in a statement. "Both shows are strong perennial performers and we are thrilled to continue to offer them to our viewers and advertisers."
"The ABC O&Os have been a fantastic broadcast partner for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! for the last few decades, and we look forward to many more years of this prosperous relationship," said DiSalvo, also in a statement. "Wheel and Jeopardy! continue to hit primetime-size ratings every night and truly prove the power that syndicated programming brings to a station's lineup."
Last month, Sony renewed the contracts of the shows' three stars-Wheel's hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White and Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek.
Both shows are produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Harry Friedman.
