As many would agree, Ryan Seacrest is a big name in entertainment today. He is mostly known for his work as a host for popular television shows like “American Idol”. Nevertheless, others know him for being a radio broadcaster on the Los Angeles-based radio station, 98.7 FM. His career is very extensive and goes far beyond the surface of what most people know.
Ryan Seacrest started out hosting kids’ shows. Some of his earliest hosting assignments included “Gladiator 2000” in 1994, “Wild Animal Games” on the Fox Family Channel in 1995, and “Click” in 1997. One of the greatest things about his career is that there were moments when one opportunity led to another. For example, through his work on the show, “Click”, a new door opened for him to have an afternoon gig at the 98.7 FM radio station in Los Angeles. It is on this radio broadcast that he entertains a great number of listeners, many of whom are commuters in traffic looking forward to his show, “Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home”.
At the start of the new millennium, as per Men’s Journal, awesome doors began to open. It was the summer of 2002 that Ryan Seacrest’s legendary work on American Idol began. Although this exact type of show had been done before in other countries, it was a first in America and Ryan Seacrest was asked to lead it. Gladly, he took the opportunity and ran with it for many years, as it is now one of his most well-known appearances.
Now, Ryan Seacrest has expanded his career to include new areas that he is passionate about. He has joined as a host with Kelly Ripa on the Live with Kelly and Ryan show, which airs on weekday mornings. Yet, the latest expansion of his career includes the official red carpet announcement made by his appearance in a suit from his very own clothing line, Ryan Seacrest Distinction, which came out in 2014. Finally, he has also decided to give back to youth through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, where he supports students’ interests in entertainment within the realm of education.
