Ryan Seacrest is easily one of the most recognizable faces in entertainment television. He was born in 1974 on Christmas Eve, and from a young age, he knew he wanted to be in the entertainment business. At the age of 16, Ryan Seacrest won an internship at a local radio station near his high school. This was his first experience with radio broadcasting, and he fell in love with it.
A few years later when he was 19, he moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in broadcasting and entertainment. He spent a few years bouncing from gig to gig, hosting multiple shows such as ESPN’s Radical Outdoor Challenge and Wild Animal Games. It wasn’t until 2002 when Ryan got his breakthrough role as the co-host on American Idol. He started as a co-host during the first season but was promoted to being the only host in the following year. Hosting American Idol is what really started Ryan’s journey to becoming a star. With around 25 million weekly viewers, Ryan Seacrest quickly became a household name (Biography).
Ryan has hosted American Idol for 18 seasons and is still planned to host the 19th season. Although he is an excellent TV host, his heart still was with broadcasting.
