To make it big in entertainment, a person needs not only talent, but also a unique drive and ambition to excel and make it to the top of their profession. In today’s Hollywood landscape, few people exemplify these traits better than Ryan Seacrest. Best known as the host of the groundbreaking reality singing show American Idol, he has become a household name over the past decade or more. However, in addition to his hosting duties on Idol, Ryan Seacrest is a man of many other talents as well.
Along with being a well-known television personality, Ryan Seacrest is also one of the most popular voices on radio. As the host of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, he finds himself with the top-rated syndicated morning-drive show, and also has a Top 40 radio show that is also extremely popular.
Following in the footsteps of other entertainment moguls such as Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest has expanded his reach into other areas of entertainment. For starters, he is the co-host and executive producer of Live with Kelly and Ryan, a long-running talk show. And when New Year’s Eve rolls around, he can be found being the host and executive producer of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
Despite his success in front of the camera and microphone, Ryan Seacrest also has many interests outside these areas. According to GQ, one of his most recent accomplishments has been the creation of a lifestyle business, which includes his menswear collection Distinction, as well as a men’s skincare line named Polished.
Finally, having had tremendous success himself, Ryan Seacrest has established himself as one of Hollywood’s top philanthropists, and is determined to help others realize their dreams. Through his Ryan Seacrest Foundation, he has been able to open more than 10 broadcast media centers in pediatric hospitals across the United States. And to make sure the visual and performing arts are alive and well in Los Angeles and other parts of the nation, he also spends his time serving as a board member of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as well as the Grammy Foundation’s honorary Chairperson.
