July 18, 2011 11:14 am

On Air with Ryan Seacrest” is invading the United Kingdom starting tonight, as our daily radio show kicks off across the Real Radio Network of stations in Wales, Scotland, Yorkshire, North West and North East England. The five stations combined reach 2.5 million listeners every week.

Delivering celebrity interviews direct from Hollywood, “On Air” is continuing to expand its reach beyond American shores, featuring a unique mix of A-list interviews, exclusive news from Hollywood, and non-stop catty banter between Ryan and co-host Ellen K. The debut show will feature an interview with international movie star Tom Cruise.

“It’s a thrill for me to bring our show to the U.K., a nation so rich in arts, culture and entertainment,” said Ryan, who also hosts “American Top 40” heard on nearly 500 stations worldwide. “It’s also exciting to expand our reach internationally, as I’m confident we’ll learn and grow, as we have every step of the way since our early days as a small radio show on one Los Angeles station.” Ryan also called in to Ditchy & Salty from Real Radio Breakfast to talk about joining the staff and get some pointers on how to broadcast to a UK crowd.
