Now that Ryan Seacrest has added hosting a rebooted “American Idol” to his list of seemingly never-ending jobs, we decided to look at a week in the life of the broadcaster, TV host, producer, philanthropist, fashion designer and dog-lover.
Seacrest has said in interviews that he wakes up around 5 a.m. His radio show, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” airs at 6 a.m. and goes until 10 a.m. on weekdays.
He then heads to the New York studio of “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” which airs at 9 a.m. ET (then it’s replayed at 9 a.m. PT).
Along with “On Air” and “Live,” Seacrest is sure to schedule in workouts for himself. He told GQ that he treats them like executive meetings, but the time can float.
In addition to those shows and his workouts, he also serves on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art board of trustees. Here he is at the LACMA’s 50th anniversary party.
Seacrest isn’t only in front of the camera. He also produces “E! Live from the Red Carpet,” Bravo’s “Shah’s of Sunset” and CMT’s “I Love Kelli Pickler.” That’s not even to mention that he created and executive produces “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and its spin-offs.
Seacrest has added more to his plate than his new spot on “Live.” He’s producing “Life of Kylie” on E!, which premieres this summer, and is launching a new skin-care line for men, which will also release this summer.
And he has signed on to reprise hosting duties on ABC’s reboot of “American Idol,” which is expected to launch in winter 2018.
Seacrest’s independent production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions, will remain based in Los Angeles despite his move to New York for “Live.” Among the many shows produced here is Jennifer Lopez’s “Shades of Blue.” ABC reports he will travel back to LA on weekends.
Seacrest continues to host “America’s Top 40,” a radio show that airs on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
All of this on a weekly basis, plus Seacrest’s yearly commitments like hosting “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” and E!’s live coverage for events like the Grammys, Golden Globes and Oscars.
