Media mogul Ryan Seacrest has signed a new 3-year deal with iHeartMedia that will keep him on the radio through Dec. 31, 2025. During that time Seacrest, who is 46, will celebrate 30 years as one of iHeart’s top personalities.
Under the agreement, Seacrest will remain a key adviser for the company and will continue to host and produce iHeartMedia’s 102.7 CHR KIIS-FM morning show, as well as the nationally-syndicated shows “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” and “American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest.” In addition, he will host several events, including the two-day iHeartRadio Music Festival and the New York City stop on the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball holiday tour, as Inside Radio reports.
Seacrest’s radio career began at WSTR-FM when he was still in high school in Atlanta. He went on to co-host an afternoon radio show in Los Angeles, which led to other radio industry work.
In addition to his role at iHeart, Seacrest will continue to host “American Idol” and co-host the talk show “Live With Kelly and Ryan”.
