Ryan Seacrest has long been one of the most popular personalities in the entertainment business. Although most people believe his first role came from Fox in the form of co-hosting the first season of American Idol, Mr. Seacrest first started his radio career in the early 1990s.
Take a look at what all made Ryan Seacrest famous and just a few of his most major accomplishments.
Ryan Seacrest created a clothing brand
One thing people associate with Ryan Seacrest is his expansion across almost the entirety of the entertainment industry. He’s produced television shows and movies, hosted countless shows, ran his own radio show, and even acted a handful of times. Further, Mr. Seacrest operates his own philanthropic organization and clothing line.
That clothing line is Distinction, which was founded in 2014 by Seacrest without formal assistance from anyone else. However, Ryan does credit the chief creative officer of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, for showing him the ropes of tailoring clothes on a small scale. Afterward, Seacrest knew he wanted to make Distinction a brand of high-quality, luxury clothing, particularly formal clothing.
Mr. Seacrest is a master of everything radio
Ryan Seacrest started his radio career in the early 1990s after getting an internship with a local radio station in Atlanta, Georgia, where he grew up. The first major show he was a part of was his very own morning show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
The king of hosting entertainment television’s multiple TV appearances
American Idol is the most popular television series Ryan Seacrest has ever been a part of. However, he’s also responsible for his annual involvement with E! News in its coverage of red carpet awards, including the Grammys, Golden Globes, and the Oscars.
Seacrest even – somehow – has time for philanthropy
The Ryan Seacrest Foundation was founded by none other than Ryan Seacrest. It places Seacrest Studios locations throughout big-time children’s hospitals to help them dive into the world of entertainment as a career. (Reference: Facebook)
