Ryan Seacrest is a mega-star. The man has appeared on television screens across the world and his silky voice booms out of radios in cars from America to China. But, how did he get here? Where is he going? Here is a look at the story and future of Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest got his first gig in the entertainment industry when he was at a tender age of 16. He was still in high school. After scoring an internship at the Atlanta radio station WSTR(FM) he was given a slot as a night host. He then went to college and left soon thereafter to move to Hollywood to pursue his dream of being a host. A dream that he accomplished in spades. His first gigs were relatively small, at least for Seacrest, and they included hosting an ESPN outdoor game show and 3 children’s game shows.
He hit the international stage when, in 2001, American Idol hired him to be their host. His smile charmed America, and the rest is history, well sort of. Seacrest has leveraged his fame to score himself a clothing line (Ryan Seacrest Distinction) and a skincare line (Polished). He is also a major producer who runs his studio RSP (Ryan Seacrest Productions) and is responsible for shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He is also slotted into the radio on his show On Air With Ryan Seacrest, which is a mega-popular syndicated radio show.
Ryan’s future, however, may be more directed towards charity. Ryan started his own charity that puts entertainment hubs in pediatric hospitals across America, and so far, it has been a hit. Ryan Seacrest’s charity puts what they call Seacrest Studios into hospitals. These hubs allow children to create their own shows using a greenscreen and camera equipment and then play it on a closed-circuit television for other children at the hospital to watch.
It doesn’t stop there. Ryan has used his Hollywood connections to get celebrities and musicians to play live concerts on the closed-circuit networks and even perform shows live for the children to watch. Ryan Seacrest has created a charity that he has the expertise and knowledge in and uses his fame to leverage himself entertainment for his charity as well. Maybe Ryan Seacrest’s future is Seacrest Studios the world’s first for children by children television channel. Only time will tell.
