Ryan Seacrest became fascinated with radio at a young age, and managed to get an internship at an Atlanta radio station before graduating from college. This internship led to an on-air gig, and he continued to work for the radio station while attending college. It wasn’t until the mid 1990’s when Ryan moved to Los Angeles that his career started to take off. He hosted his own afternoon show called Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home which was on air until 2004, that was the year he started hosting American Top 40. He also started his own syndicated radio show, called On Air with Ryan Seacrest in 2003.
But working on his radio show wasn’t the only thing Ryan was interested in. When he moved to LA he also started on his television career, hosting a kids show as well as the Radical Outdoor Challenge for ESPN. Again, it was the early 2000’s when his television work began to take off, after landing a role as cohost on American idol, a job that last 14 years. Only a few years after starting on American Idol, Ryan began to host Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve show and E! News. He hosted the London Olympics for NBC and a game show. And most recently, he has joined Kelly Ripa on ABC.
This is all in addition to the work Ryan Seacrest has done as a producer on Keeping up with the Kardasian’s and Food Revolution (for which he won an Emmy). This propelled him to create his own media company called Ryan Seacrest Media.
Now, Ryan Seacrest is sharing his passion for radio and media with children all over the country. He has begun building studios in pediatric hospitals all across the country, inspiring and entertaining children while they recover. These studios will provide a place for children to play and learn about broadcasting, enabling them to remain optimistic during treatment.
