As arguably the busiest man in show business, Ryan Seacrest is clearly a jack of all trades.
His latest gig has him sitting next to Kelly Ripa as co-host of the “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan” morning talk show. Seacrest was awarded this role in 2017 after Ripa’s former co-host, Michael Strahan, left to join the team at “Good Morning America.” Because the show is filmed in New York City, Seacrest has had to take up the bi-coastal life, maintaining residences in both Manhattan and in Los Angeles.
In his radio pursuits, Seacrest is the host of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”, the nationally-syndicated Los Angeles morning show produced by iHeart Media. In addition to this daily program, Seacrest also hosts a Top 40 countdown weekly gig.
Earlier this year, Seacrest revived his role as host of “American Idol” when the show returned to the United States. Auditions for the 2019 season are now underway, keeping Seacrest busy in his spare time away from “LIVE” and his radio shows.
The consummate entertainer also takes ownership of ABC’s New Year’s Eve program as both host and executive producer. No stranger to the awards scene, Seacrest works for the E! Network hosting various red carpet award shows.
Wanting to become more involved in the behind the scenes production, Seacrest launched Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP) in 2006. The Emmy-winning production company is responsible for programming in a variety of genres, including “I Love Kellie Pickler,” “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” and “Shades of Blue.”
Known for his keen fashion sense, Seacrest launched his own men’s tailored clothing collection in 2014. Ryan Seacrest Distinction is sold exclusively at Macy’s and offers a variety of apparel and accessories selections. Seacrest is now busy with the launch of a new men’s skincare line, Polished. With an emphasis on providing quality anti-aging skincare for men, the line is backed and co-founded by Dr. Harold Lancer.
