Biography

As one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2003, it may have surprised some that perennial media presence Ryan Seacrest began his career in radio. Beginning in high school, Seacrest yearned to be behind a microphone, which eventually led to work as a nationally syndicated radio show host at the Los Angeles-based 102.7 KIIS FM. Although velvet smooth on the airwaves, even listeners could not have predicted his meteoric rise. While still working the mic, his camera-friendly looks and affable manner helped him land the mother of all hosting gigs: being the go-between for the harsh judges and the wannabe contestants on the international ratings sensation, "American Idol" (Fox, 2002- ), a singing competition that placed the decision of who became America's next pop idol into the hands of viewers. Thanks to his "Idol" gig and successful morning radio show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," he was able to branch out into a multitude of media ventures, including as co-host and producer of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" (ABC, 2000- ), substitute host on "Larry King Live" (CNN, 1985-2010), and executive producer with E! Networks on a variety of reality programming - not to mention co-hosting "E! News Live" nightly. A veritable jack-of-all-trades, Seacrest commanded respect for his ability to not only rise from radio to TV stardom, but to successfully and humorously juggle a mini-media empire of his own creation.
