Ryan Seacrest may be the busiest man in Hollywood, but fans would never know it from his unstoppable energy and on-air charisma. His personality has made him one of the most famous hosts in Hollywood, but Ryan has a hand in many different business ventures from radio to menswear. In addition to his long list of full-time jobs, he launched his foundation, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which has helped countless children suffering from illnesses.
Ryan’s love of media started out at a young age. He bought his first radio headset at just 10 years old and practiced impersonating his favorite DJs. Although Ryan began attending Santa Monica College in L.A. to study broadcasting, he went onto land several hosting gigs and began work as the night DJ for KYSR. Through Ryan’s hard work, he ended up hosting the radio show Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home, which became the top afternoon talk show in L.A. Ryan hasn’t left his roots in radio behind. Ryan currently hosts On Air with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM, which is broadcast live from the ABC studios in New York.
According to his Instagram account, when Ryan isn’t broadcasting on the radio, he hosts American Idol, a position he has held since 2002. The show underwent cancellation, but when it was revamped under a new network, Ryan was tapped to host the show once again. In 2017, Ryan landed the job as co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan on ABC. After a long search for a co-host for Kelly, Ryan (@ryanseacrest) was the perfect fit. He tapes the show with Kelly in Manhattan after flying from L.A. from American Idol.
Ryan also launched Distinction, a menswear line of tailored pieces inspired by his time spent on the red carpet. It offers quality pieces at accessible price points. Some of Ryan’s most important work is with his Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The foundation brings specialized entertainment studios to children’s hospitals so patients can learn while exploring a creative outlet. Watch Ryan on ABC!
