Did you know that Ryan Seacrest is the face behind the E! Series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, ABC’s Shades of Blue, and Emmy award-winning Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution? Did you also know that Ryan maintains an even more successful entrepreneurial career away from the TV and Radio? Here is what you need to know about the host of ABC’s iconic musical competition series American Idol that also features such musical legendries as Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.
Successful radio and TV career
The American Idol won’t be Seacrest’s first TV show. He hosts the Disney/ABC syndicated morning talk show, Live With Kelly and Ryan. Here, Ryan serves as the co-host and executive producer. He is also the host of the award-winning E! Live From The Red Carpet. Ryan is also the host and producer of ABC’s New Year’s Eve program held annually, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.
Away from TV, Ryan Seacrest has an equally successful radio career where he hosts several state-based and nationally syndicated shows. On Air With Ryan Seacrest, a morning drive-time show for iHeartMeadia’s 102.7 KIIS FM in Los Angeles, however, remains his most successful engagement on the radio yet.
Seacrest takes pride in his rapidly growing lifestyle enterprise. He started off with the Ryan Seacrest Distinction, a menswear collection sold at Macy’s. The budding entrepreneur would then partner with world renown dermatologist Dr. Harold Lance to start a skincare line or men, Polished By Dr. Lancer. He also maintains long-standing endorsement contracts with such global brands as Ford and Coca-Cola.
Entry into the Film industry
The experience gained in producing and hosting radio and TV shows equipped him with the necessary skills to start Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP). The entertainment production company has gone on to produce some award-winning and popular drama and reality shows.
These include Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez’ Shades Of Blue, Insatiable for Netflix, and YouTube’s Best.Cover.Ever. The company has not only received national acclaim as one of the fastest growing entertainment production houses but has already scooped an Emmy award for mastery in film production.
