On-Air with Ryan Seacrest
Originally from Atlanta, Ryan Seacrest's professional career in broadcasting began at the age of sixteen when he applied for an internship at one of Atlanta's top radio stations, WSTR-STAR 94. While working at STAR 94 he finished high school and went on to attend the University of Georgia where he majored in Journalism. During his freshman year in college, he was offered his first television show as the host of ESPN's "Radical Outdoor Challenge," in which athletes competed against one another for cash prizes.
With his thriving broadcasting career and multiple ventures in media, Ryan Seacrest is at the forefront of the entertainment industry. While hosting and producing multiple television and radio programs, as well as building Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP) into a viable entity that creates content for all media platforms and myriad brand ventures, Seacrest is redefining what it means to be an entrepreneur in Hollywood. He was recently honored with an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for his work on American Idol. Seacrest was added to the prestigious list of Emmy Awards hosts in 2007 and 2008.
Seacrest holds preeminent positions in the worlds of broadcast television, nationally syndicated radio, local radio and cable. He serves as host of American Idol, "American Top 40" and his own No. 1 nationally syndicated morning radio show for Clear Channel's 102.7 KIIS-FM. Additionally, Seacrest executive-produces and co-hosts "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest."
RSP has quickly established itself as a full-fledged production entity with numerous pilots, series and specials in production and development. Seacrest's latest project is a new reality show with famed British chef Jamie Oliver where Oliver will touch down in America's unhealthiest cities and give its residents good-food makeovers using local resources. The company's credits include "Denise Richards: It's Complicated" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." RSP and Bunim-Murray Productions recently debuted a new half-hour series, "Kourtney and Khloe in Miami."
