After hosting a radio show in high school, Ryan Seacrest got his career in motion in 1993 hosting an ESPN television show, the Radical Outdoor Challenge, followed by three children’s game shows from 1995-1997. He then appeared on Beverly Hills, 90210 and hosted NBC Saturday Night Movie as well as Ultimate Revenge.

In 2002 Ryan’s big break came in the form of the reality series American Idol. Initially, he co-hosted the show, but was sole host by season two, becoming the highest paid television host ever. He continued to host until the show ended in 2016 after 15 seasons.

Seacrest has kept himself busy, garnering the nickname the “hardest working man in Hollywood,” working with shows like Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Larry King Live, Knock Knock Live, and Live With Kelly and Ryan. 2017 brought the announcement that Ryan would be back as the American Idol host as well. Seacrest also works behind the scenes, producing a number of shows like E! News, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, Shahs of Sunset, Melissa and Tye, and Married To Jonas. Additionally, radio is still a part of his life, hosting the American Top 40 and On Air With Ryan Seacrest.

Not just a business man, Seacrest has also devoted his time and talents to charity, launching the Ryan Seacrest Foundation in 2010. Through this, he strives to build media centers in pediatric hospitals to assist patients in healing by their exploration of television, radio, and media. The goal is to uplift and bring positivity to the hospitals they are in.

Spreading the excitement and accessibility of multimedia experiences is important to Ryan. That’s why the media centers created by his foundation also open their doors to the community, area students, and journalism schools to ensure everyone has the ability for first-hand knowledge in the various forms of broadcasting.

With all of his projects and passions, Ryan Seacrest is sure to stay a household name for many years.
