Ryan Seacrest, an American television and radio personality, kicked off his career in the field after gaining national – if not worldwide – exposure following his role as host on American Idol.
Though Mr. Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) still hosts the popular Fox series today, his resume has certainly gained significant length since he started on the show nearly two decades ago. Let’s take a peek at his career throughout the years and dissect what aspects of it has made him so successful.
Ryan Seacrest’s most recent endeavors
Mr. Ryan Seacrest recently started hosting On Air with Ryan Seacrest from a studio in Manhattan, New York and is hosted on KIIS-FM from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In the past, Ryan started hosting On Air with Ryan Seacrest in 2004 – then it was broadcast over television airways, not radio – which was moved to radio in 2008. Since then, the show has been hosted without stop on some 130-plus radio stations across Canada and the United States.
Further, Ryan Seacrest began working on Live with Kelly Ripa after leaving American Idol a few years ago. The show changed its name to Live with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest and still airs today – May 2018.
Seacrest is great with fashion, as well
In 2014, Mr. Ryan Seacrest ventured into men’s fashion for the first time by founding Distinction, a lifestyle brand for men that specializes in business casual and formal wear. Mr. Seacrest had plenty of experience judging the hottest styles and trends in all of men’s clothing as he’s hosted big-name awards shows like the Golden Globes, the Oscars, and the Grammys, interviewing some of the world’s hottest celebrities about what styles they wear and why.
Even though Seacrest looks objectively great today, he grew up as an overweight, nerdy, shy boy who enjoyed listening to various talk radio stations. At the young age of 10, he saved up money for months to purchase an audio mixing and recording tool – and so his career was born.
