Ryan Seacrest is famously busy throughout the day. Once in an interview he ticked off the number of jobs he had, including his live radio show “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” among others, and ticked off nine of them. He says that he works efficiently in order to keep up with everything that is going on. He has also learned to consolidate some of his jobs to just one location. For instance, the studio for “on Air With Ryan Seacrest” is just down the hall from where his tv show tapes.
Another way he keeps up with the pace is by having developed a great team around him. He says he has experts on his staff to help him manage each of his jobs. They keep him updated on what is going on and what’s coming up next. He says he also gets a series of emails at the end of each day where he is told what happened in each division.
It was 13 years ago that Ryan Seacrest founded a production company. He says it started with just one employee. He was watching “The Osbournes” and he found it really great. He thought about starting something similar with another family. He knew Kris Jenner wanted to start a show about her family and Ryan Seacrest thought that was a great idea. The result was “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and now it has had numerous spin-offs that he also produces.
While he had success in Hollywood before hosting American Idol, that was the show that put Ryan Seacrest on the national map. His hosting of that show led to numerous opportunities to host other events, among them New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC. He started appearing on that show in 2005 while the longtime host Dick Clark took more of a back seat due to his having suffered a stroke.
“On Air With Ryan Seacrest” is on each weekday. It is a four-hour live radio show which is on from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. PT. He used to produce this show in California but he has since moved the studio to New York.
