Ryan Seacrest has unarguably had one of the brightest careers in entertainment over the past two decades. Mr. Seacrest has spread his busy working life across the roles of radio broadcast host, co-host and lead personality of various TV shows, and producer of more media productions than a short article can list.
Most recently, Seacrest filled the role of daytime TV host by joining Live with Kelly and Ryan on May 1, 2017, a position the popular personality has held for just over twelve months. Immediately prior to his arrival on the ABC morning show, Live with Kelly and Ryan was known as Live with Kelly and Live with Kelly and Michael.
Here’s how Mr. Seacrest’s career really kicked off
In 2002, Fremantle Media North America first broadcast American Idol: The Search for a Superstar on Fox. From that year through 2016, American Idol featured Ryan Seacrest as its one and only host.
The attractive and personable Mr. Seacrest’s big-time career took flight immediately after completing his first season on the Fox-broadcasted show, though his career in entertainment dates back to 1990 when he was the overnight weekend host of a local radio station in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
What has Ryan Seacrest done since then?
As many major celebrities and business tycoons – Seacrest fits the roles of both – do, Ryan (@ryanseacrest) founded his own nonprofit business in 2011, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The major philanthropic endeavor is best known for its broadcast media centers across children’s medical facilities across the United States.
The Ryan Seacrest Foundation builds those centers, each of which are known as Seacrest Studios, so children bogged down with the realities of suffering from diseases and chronic ailments can achieve temporary relief by dipping their proverbial feet into the world of entertainment. Further, each hospital’s Seacrest Studios facility pairs with local four-year colleges and universities to provide children with real-world insight into what working in the entertainment industry entails.
