A year after the emotional end of American Idol, the charismatic persona known as Ryan Seacrest, was interviewed by Lacey Rose of The Hollywood reporter despite his incredibly busy schedule. Ryan Seacrest, the same man who could be heard saying “This is American Idol.”, in countless households for fifteen years has now settled into the next phase of his career. As co-host on Live with Kelly and Ryan as well as hosting his daily radio show On air with Ryan, he is very much unhindered by the change. Now 42-years old, Seacrest has become a walking franchise, ranging from a Macy’s line to various endorsement deals.
However, reaching this point was not easy for the TV host Seacrest. After fifteen seasons, Ryan Seacrest watched the end and cancellation of American Idol after witnessing the confetti fall on 15th Idol winner(Trent Harmon). Fox decided to cancel the show in April 2016 after a 60 percent decrease in audience attendance. This was a time of uncertainty for Seacrest as he was made famous by the show, even stating “Who am I if not the ‘American Idol’ guy?”. Once the smoke settled on the multi-network bidding war for the show, ABC obtained American Idol and wanted Ryan Seacrest aboard for the reboot. After several negotiations and meetings with Disney/ABC and Fremantle North America to swap ideas on modernizing the show, Seacrest received an insultingly lowball offer from Fremantle. At the time, Seacrest was already co-hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan which had him stationed in New York. It was finally time for him to start a new chapter after twenty years in Los Angeles.
Live with Kelly and Ryan, On Air with Ryan, as well as Ryan’s other business ventures already have him grossing more than $50 million annually. Seacrest has successfully started The Ryan Seacrest Foundation and a clothing line with Macy’s called Ryan Seacrest Distinction in his spare time. Adding American Idol to his schedule would have taken him farther from the work life balance that he was trying to achieve.
Ryan Seacrest had made a name for himself by hosting American Idol for fifteen seasons before having to maneuver through uncertainty. He has became a household name, overcome obstacles, and achieved success, while striving for a healthy work life balance. Seacrest may have hosted American Idol, but his accomplishments make him an idol in his own rite. If you want to know about Ryan’s work out routine, read this article from the New York Times.
