When you talk about entertainment no doubt the name Ryan Seacrest is a familiar one to varied audiences. Ryan has been involved in entertainment for many years. There is certainly no sign of him slowing down either.
As a kid from Atlanta, Georgia Ryan Seacrest knew pretty early on that entertainment was where he was headed. He studied Journalism in college and worked weekends at WSTR in Atlanta, only to leave school early. Hollywood was calling Ryan and he headed to the land of dreams.
Ryan was fortunate to land some small hosting jobs that helped keep him in Hollywood. Just ten years after graduating Dunwoody High School in Atlanta this phenom landed American Idol. The first year of American Idol Ryan and Brian Dunkelman hosted the show together. By the second year of American Idol Ryan Seacrest became the sole host of American Idol. His chemistry with Simon Cowell and his excellent hosting skills helped to make Ryan the highest paid reality tv host.
His look on American Idol was something that had a lot of viewers wondering how they too could look as sharp as Ryan. His ability to wear form fitting suits helped to create his Ryan Seacrest Distinction clothing line. His couffed hair and flawless skin brought about the Ryan Seacrest Polish line of skincare. Ryan has not forgotten his audience and makes sure the prices on his lines are affordable.
Still true to his roots as well, Ryan continued to honor his background in radio with his very popular “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”. His show on Los Angeles station KIIS-fm attracts some of the top names in entertainment. Ryan (@ryanseacrest) is pretty much an unstoppable force as he took on the role of host of America’s Top 40 after the infamous Casey Kasem retired after almost 40 years.
According to the New York Times, another well-loved and infamous man in entertainment was Dick Clark. Millions of Americans have watched the ball drop from NYC’s Times Square with Dick Clark since they were kids. When Dick suffered a stroke the powers that be knew that there was only one man that could take the show and continue the tradition and that was Ryan Seacrest.
Ryan Seacrest seems to step into some very large footprints and his new job as host of Live with Kelly and Ryan. Following Regis is no small task but if anyone can give it a go it’s definitely Ryan Seacrest.
But this isn’t all that Ryan does, he is a very active producer and creates a lot of the top shows in entertainment. His business side is balanced out with his philanthropic work. The Ryan Seacrest Foundation continues to do incredible work by helping children experience the industry during some of the worst times in their lives. His work building broadcast centers in children’s hospitals has brightened some dark times.
