Typically, a day for Ryan Seacrest will begin as early as six o’clock in the morning. He begins with a shower and a shave, sips a cup of matcha tea, and then switches to coffee, before heading out the door. As the new co-host of “Live” alongside Kelly Ripa, he now has a much shorter commute from his apartment to the New York studio. It only takes about seven minutes from the Upper East Side, where he resides. While in the car with his driver, he will normally catch up on the morning news.
Ryan remains the host of American Idol, and he still continues his morning radio show “On Air with Ryan Seacrest.” He is the executive producer for the long-running reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on the E! Network. He is also the founder and chairman of Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which he started as a way to help young children, who face life-threatening illnesses, to learn and play in multimedia centers; appropriately named Seacrest Studios. The foundation has 10 studios at children’s hospitals throughout the nation.
It’s hard to imagine having time to complete all of his many hosting duties and business responsibilities, yet Ryan Seacrest finds a way to do it all. He also remains committed to a fitness regimen. He has a few trainers to keep him motivated to stay physically fit. Ryan Seacrest will be the first person to admit that he indulges in more food and wine than he should sometimes, especially on weekends, but he has learned how to bounce right back to the gym. Although he declares that he’s mostly a vegan, Ryan loves to eat and isn’t shy about sharing with others. He’s usually picking up the dinner tab – sometimes paying the restaurant in advance.
Ryan Seacrest, now 43 years old, has learned how to slow down, while still being productive. He no longer responds to business issues reactively, but instead, he will choose a more measured approach. If there is something that can wait until later in the day or be scheduled, Ryan says that he will “queue” the task to be resolved at another time. His favorite words to use is “got it,” which means that he can “queue the issue” and then move on.
