Ryan Seacrest is best known for being the host of American Idol but he has also been a part of many other popular shows on the tv and radio. He is also a producer and he has a popular line of menswear plus a new line of men’s skincare products. While American Idol has been off the air for a few years it is now returning, and he has agreed to once again be the host.
He is 43 years old and is originally from Atlanta. He was a student at the University of Georgia where he was a student for a year before deciding to leave college and instead find his fortunes in Hollywood. His first show was in 1993 and he hosted Radical Outdoor Challenge on ESPN. This led to hosting some kids shows where he gained more exposure. His radio career grew out of this and he now has about 20 million listeners for his “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” show.
Ryan Seacrest’s hosting duties expanded in 2005 when he joined Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. He has since hosted other events and in May 2017 he joined Kelly Rippa for a new television show called, “Live with Kelly and Ryan”. This necessitated that he leaves Los Angeles and move to New York.
He is also a producer. He is the executive producer of 12 shows which includes “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its spin-offs like “Kourtney and Kim Take New York”. He also executive produces “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” which won an Emmy Award.
It was in 2014 that he launched Ryan Seacrest Distinction. This brand of clothing is only sold in Macy’s retail stores. He also signed an agreement to only sell his newer line of men’s skincare products there. As he is known for wearing close-fitting suits that is what Distinction originally offered. This didn’t succeed as much as he hoped because a lot of guys didn’t want to wear slim clothing. He retooled this line of clothing and that was very successfully done as he is on target for selling $50 million worth of clothing in 2018. He doesn’t only focus on business but he also contributes to charities and foundations.
