Ryan is proud to announce that he is entering a new and expanded three-year partnership agreement under which he will continue in his current role as producer and host of three top-rated radio programs broadcast in Los Angeles and New York, which are also syndicated for national and international distribution. Additionally, Ryan will create new content for distribution through Clear Channel’s traditional and digital radio platforms, as well as serve as a spokesperson for Clear Channel. Under the new agreement, Ryan and Clear Channel will also create joint ventures to develop and promote new musical artists and other multi-platform media projects.

“I believe Clear Channel’s programming is only beginning to scratch the surface of what we can achieve together to connect with audiences and create innovative and compelling opportunities for listeners and advertisers,” said Ryan. “I’m excited to work closely with Clear Channel’s radio leadership to develop new concepts and content that brings the untapped potential of radio to life across a range of delivery platforms. I’m particularly looking forward to exploring and capitalizing on the exciting possibilities the digital era holds for radio.”

The terms of the new agreement call for Ryan to continue as host of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” his top-rated daily radio program which airs from 5:00 – 10:00 a.m. PT on 102.7 KIIS-FM in Los Angeles, which is also tailored for New York 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.”

American Top 40 continues to be the number one countdown show in the U.S. and can be heard on nearly 500 radio stations worldwide including markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Singapore, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Beijing and many others. For the past five years, Ryan’s local radio show on KIIS-FM/Los Angeles has been the most-listened-to program in Southern California.

Further, the agreement calls for Ryan to commit time as a spokesperson for Clear Channel, and his endorsements of Clear Channel products and services will include appearances at events such as Jingle Ball and Wango Tango. Ryan will also work closely with Clear Channel to develop exclusive new radio content for national and international syndication via both traditional and digital media.

A third element of the agreement creates a joint venture between Ryan and Clear Channel aimed at developing and producing various entertainment concepts such as a record label and music publishing, a live concert series and content for television.
