How Ryan Seacrest Branched Out From Television Hosting

Ryan Seacrest started out as a television host, most notably American Idol. He soon branched out, first as a radio host on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, a morning show that airs on KIIS-FM. Starting on May 1, 2017, he started hosting another television morning show, Live with Kelly and Ryan, on ABC. Every New Years he also appears on another ABC show, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. He has now hosted this show for 13 years, along with Jenny McCarthy for the past eight years.

He is also known for his sense of fashion. Beginning in 2009 he began to partner with Christopher Bailey of Burberry’s. Bailey designed his clothing for Ryan Seacrest at first for his red-carpet hosting and then for what he wore on American Idol. He likes to wear close-fitting suits and decided he would launch a line of clothing like this. His clothing line, Ryan Seacrest Distinction, was first available in 2014 and is available at Macy’s in an exclusive arrangement. His line also includes accessories like belts, jewelry, ties, and cufflinks.

Other than his radio show, Ryan Seacrest also launched a line of skincare products for men called Polished in 2017. He announced this line on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. There are five products in this line such as a Daily Micro-Scrub, a Dual Cleanse and Shave, and an Oil-Free Moisturizer SPF 30. This was launched in a partnership with his dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer.

As a philanthropist, he launched Ryan Seacrest Foundation eight years ago. His foundation builds broadcast media centers inside of children’s hospitals, ten of them to date. The patients at these hospitals can go into these media centers and find out about radio and TV media. They can also access media inside of their patient rooms as well.

The Ryan Seacrest Foundation accepts donations through its website, which are tax-deductible. They also have volunteers working in these media centers. To find out if any specific hospital needs volunteers a person can go to the contact page at ryanseacrestfoundation.org or check out @ryanseacrest on facebook and on instagram and send a message to that hospital who will inform them if they have any opportunities available.
