Ryan Seacrest is a 43-year-old radio and TV personality. He got his start as a host of many different children’s shows such as Wild Animal Games, Gladiators 2000, and Click. Later on, he landed an amazing job at Los Angeles’s Radio Station, 98.7 FM. Here he was able to host the #1 daily afternoon talk show titled, “Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home.” During the summer of 2002, his popularity started to grow when he got the job as the host of American Idol, a Star Search. Here the tv and radio show host was in charge of hosting the round of auditions before the people made it on to the big stage. This is the same responsibilities that he has for the American Juniors. During both of these gigs, he is able to work closely with the competitors and the judges, to make sure that everyone is doing their very best to make it a hit.
With all his success in show business, Seacrest decided it was time to give back to others. He started to Ryan Seacrest Foundation which is an amazing organization for children that are facing life-threatening illnesses or injuries. The main focus of this non-profit organization is to inspire today’s youth through entertainment and education initiatives. The first project that was started with this program was to build broadcast media centers with the name Seacrest Studios. These media centers would be placed in children’s hospitals all over the country and would allow the patients to go in and interact with state-of-the-art radio/TV studio equipment. Not only are these children being allowed to interact with some of the best equipment around, but they are being allowed to meet some of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry.
Ryan Seacrest got his start from small children’s shows and had to work his way up in the industry. He eventually made a name for himself and started getting bigger and better gigs, like American Idol. Once he had made it big enough, he decided it was time to help others, and created his Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
