The RiverPark Center will welcome a familiar face for the upcoming “Wheel of Fortune LIVE!” event in September.
Mark L. Walberg, the longtime host of PBS’ ”Antiques Roadshow,” has joined the production of the event as the host of the event, which will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8.

He also hosted Fox’s “Temptation Island” and “The Moment of Truth,” with the former being revived in 2019 by the USA Network and finished airing its seventh season in May.
Walberg currently hosts the live touring experience for “The Price is Right.”
He will be joined by actress Kalpana Pot serving as the touring co-host and Dave Styles, radio personality and in-stadium host for the Los Angeles Dodgers as the event’s announcer.
According to a press release, the theatrical experience “Wheel of Fortune LIVE!” will allow guests to try out to go on stage and “feel like they stepped onto the stage of one of the greatest game shows of all time.

Audience members will also be eligible to win cash and prizes.
