Ryan Seacrest has many jobs, and working for iHeartMedia will continue to be one of his gigs, for at least the next three years. The multi-year extension is cool, but what’s even more impressive is the expansion of what Seacrest is connected to in the company.
Seacrest isn’t just a personality–he is an advisor who works closely with iHeartMedia Chairman & CEO Bob Pittman and President, COO & CFO Rich Bressler. According to the press release, Seacrest “will provide input into all the company’s major events and initiatives as well as developing new ways to connect advertisers closely to consumers.” In addition Ryan Seacrest will retain his hosting roles on the company’s Top 40 powerhouse KIIS/Los Angeles, the nationally-syndicated “ On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” “American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest,” “Direct from Hollywood,” and iHeartMedia’s nationally recognized events.
Here’s what Seacrest had to say about his new deal:
“I’ve been active in everything from broadcast radio to digital, from television to social media and more – and the wonderful thing about my extended relationship with iHeartMedia is that it ties everything together. I’m grateful for the support of Bob and Rich. Their continued confidence fuels my creative spirit and inspires me to do a job I’ve loved since I was 15 years old.”
Congratulations to Ryan Seacrest on his awesome reup!
