Former American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is a man who is doing it all. Just a few short years ago, he was labled “The hardest working man in Hollywood.” He attained that title due to the fact that his face and name was popping up literally everywhere.
In an interview with GQ, Seacrest discussed his career and how he manages to do it all.
When asked how many jobs he has, the producer admitted that he didn’t even know himself. During his stint on American Idol, he managed to secure a number of radio jobs, including taking over America’s Top 40 for Casey Kasem. He also hosts the red carpet for “E” network and even runs his own production company. His clothing line launched in 2017.
Seacrest says he is able to manage all of his duties because he has a lot of discipline. “You have to be fast, yet efficient,” said Seacrest. He says having a great staff is a huge help. They keep him updated on everything he needs to know.
The TV host says his day starts at about 5:00 a.m. He drinks a cup of coffee or tea then heads out the door. Ryan Seacrest says he used to have trouble getting in his daily workouts. Now it’s a priority. “I can usually get one in between 10:00 a.m and 5:00 p.m.”
He admits he doesn’t have much patience. This is one of the biggest reasons why he manages to get things done. “I don’t need much to get me motivated. When the lights come on, I’m usually ready.”
Seacrest says his biggest break was getting a radio gig as a 16 year old in Atlanta. According to the radio show host, he had great mentors who helped him springboard into success. He dropped out of the University of Georgia to pursue a radio career in California.
“I thought, if I’m not able to support myself within a year, I’ll move back home and continue school.”
The rest is history.
