Ryan Seacrest, Clear Channel expand and renew contract


The new and expanded three-year agreement has Seacrest continuing in his current role as producer and host of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, his daily radio show which airs from 5:00 – 10:00 a.m. PT on CC Radio’s 102.7 KIIS-FM in LA, which is also tailored for NYC on Z100. In addition, the nationally syndicated mid-day version of On Air with Ryan Seacrest will be expanded to four hours and also extends Ryan’s services on American Top 40, syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. The deal is reportedly worth $60 million.

Seacrest will create and deliver new content for distribution through CC’s traditional and digital radio platforms on both a local market and national basis, as well as serve as a spokesperson for Clear Channel. The new deal has Seacrest and Clear Channel also creating joint ventures to develop and promote new musical artists and other multi-platform media projects.

Seacrest and Clear Channel first joined in 2004 when he assumed hosting duties for AT40 and also began morning hosting duties for Clear Channel’s KIIS-FM morning show.
