Ryan Seacrest is known to viewers of his hit shows including daytime and primetime shows but he has also created a business and philanthropy empire to rival that of his heroes, including TV presenter Dick Clark. After finding fame as a radio host and presenter of “American Idol”, Ryan Seacrest has become one of the most successful and respected TV producers in Hollywood through the work of his Ryan Seacrest Productions company; he is also known around Southern California and across the U.S. for the work he has completed to bring entertainment to young people through his Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
Perhaps best known for his role as the presenter of “American Idol” and for his daytime TV show, “Live! With Kelly and Ryan”, Seacrest is a stalwart of U.S. TV who also fronts the annual “Rockin’ Eve” special broadcast each New Year’s Eve live from New York’s Times Square. The presenter has also become a familiar voice on the radio for his nationally syndicated morning show and a Top 40 broadcast he presents each day.
After branching out into production, Ryan Seacrest has become a producer of some of TV’s most successful shows including the world’s top reality TV shows, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and the drama series, “Shades of Blue”. The Jennifer Lopez starring show is a foray into fiction alongside the Netflix show, “Insatiable.”
As an entrepreneur and philanthropist, Ryan Seacrest has a growing reputation after the launch of his menswear brand, “Ryan Seacrest Distinction” which focuses on men’s clothing. Outside of his work as an entrepreneur, the “American Idol” host has become one of the most active philanthropists in Hollywood with board positions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the work of Ryan Seacrest has been his work as the head of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation which allows him the chance to bring entertainment and media centers to sick children in hospitals around the U.S.
