Dick Clark’s replacement on New Year’s Rockin Eve is Ryan Seacrest, a man who has given Mr. Clark’s legacy a serious challenge in both his hard work ethic and the large number of projects in the works. Ryan Seacrest is a busy man with a radio broadcast show in L.A., a TV show in New York, a production company, a line of men’s clothing, a men’s skincare line and extra-curricular activities like serving on company boards and running a charity foundation.
This very busy man started with emceeing the TV talent contest, “American Idol”. He’s still with that production. He originally joined American Idol for its second season in 2003. Now, he adds to his workload a nationally syndicated radio show called, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest for iHeart Media’s 102.7 KIIS-FM. Now, the consummate work-a-holic, Ryan Seacrest is the co-host for ABC’s morning show, “Live with Kelly and Ryan”.

Seacrest expresses his interest in charity through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. His non-profit 501(c)3 organization has built 10 media centers in children’s hospitals to encourage young patients. The organization wanted to give them stimulating and optimistic experiences while healing. It also gives young journalism students opportunities to get experience with operating a multimedia center and broadcast programming.
Macy’s department store sells the menswear collection by Ryan Seacrest called, “Distinction“. In addition to the clothing, he has a skincare line formulated by the dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer called, “Polished”. As if, Radio, TV, producing, philanthropic endeavors, a clothing and skincare line were not enough, he is a spokesman for Coca Cola and Ford.
Ryan Seacrest has a very full daily, weekly and monthly schedule. With so many responsibilities, he manages to make it all look so seamless transitioning from emcee, to announcer, to host to an entrepreneur. He does everything so well; we look forward to seeing what he’ll do next.
