Ryan Seacrest is always on the move. For example, after spending a weekend in Nashville, Tennessee helping to auditions singers for a new season of American Idol he rushed back his home in New York City. The next morning he was on his tv show with Kelly Ripa called, “Live with Kelly and Ryan“. Directly after this concluded he had to rush to another studio so that he could do his live radio show called, “On Air With Ryan Seacrest“. He then spent the remainder of his day planning for upcoming shows as well as working on his business empire. He says this is pretty much his daily schedule and he loves it.
His life will only get busier when American Idol makes its season debut. At that point he will have to fly to Los Angeles, California, every Sunday in order to host this live show. He will then have to catch a red-eye flight back to New York so that he can do his morning show with Kelly Ripa at 9 a.m. ET. He also has other hosting duties during the year such as doing the Jingle Ball, the New York New Years Eve show, and hosting the iHeart Radio Music Awards held in March each year.
Ryan Seacrest was born in Atlanta and he attended the University of California. One thing people don’t generally know about him is that he appeared in Crimson Tide in 1995. He was briefly on screen looking at an aquarium. He was there just as an extra so he wasn’t named in the credits. Other early successes for him was on children’s tv shows. He was on three of these which were “Click”, “Wild Animal Games”, and “Gladiators 2000”.
He says that his mentor early in his career was Merv Griffin who of course had been a tv host for many years. In 2005 Ryan Seacrest was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio. He has hosted a number of radio shows over the years with “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” being the latest one, found on radio stations throughout the world.
