A Look At Ryan Seacrest’s Career And Philanthropy

Ryan Seacrest was convinced to come back to “American Idol” when it made its return, airing for the first time on ABC in the spring of 2018. Not that it took too much convincing as he loves being the host of this show. Joining him on the cast this season are Gabby Barrett, Maddie Poppe, Caleb Lee Hutchison, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie.

He also has another show on ABC which he executive produces. This is “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and features him and Kelly Ripa. Ryan Seacrest also hosts another ABC show each year which is “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest”. The other tv show he hosts is “E! Live from the Red Carpet”.

Ryan Seacrest can also be heard on the radio each weekday. His show originates on iHeratMedia’s KIIS-FM 102.7 and is called, “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”. This is a top 40 show that is syndicated across America. He also has Ryan Seacrest Productions which he has built into an Emmy-winning television production company. Among the popular shows he produces are “Shades of Blue”, “I Love Kelly Pickler”, “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” (which won an Emmy), and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” among others.

He even has products out in retail stores. The first thing to he released for his lifestyle company was “Ryan Seacrest Distinction” which is a menswear collection. This was followed up by “Polished by Dr. Lancer”. He co-developed this brand with Dr. Harold Lancer who is a globally known dermatologist. This brand is a men’s skincare collection of products.

He routes his philanthropic efforts through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. This foundation opens media locations inside of children’s hospitals called “Seacrest Studios”. Children at these hospitals can learn about television and radio production as well as new media. Children can take part either from physically within the studio or by seeing a closed-circuit broadcast in their own room.

Ryan Seacrest – Wine Lover and Foodie Extraordinaire

You may already know Ryan Seacreast as the popular host of TV shows like “American Idol” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” He can also be heard regularly on the radio, on both his weekday radio program, “On Air with Ryan Seacreast,” and the countdown show formerly hosted by Casey Kasem, “American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest.” You may not know, however, that Ryan Seacrest is a total foodie, mostly vegan, and working mainly so that he can occasionally enjoy a great bottle of wine with a leisurely dinner.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Ryan Seacrest is Just One Man, He Can Only Do So Much in This Life, Ryan Seacreast reveals these tidbits, as well as some of his secrets to cramming so much activity into each and every day. These include a basic self-care routine that consists of nothing more than a shower, shave, and a little moisturizer; a fairly standard uniform of sweats, a zip-up hoodie, and (seasonally) Uggs; and regular workouts – currently boxing with a coach, Peloton bikes, and running in the park. He also refuses to choose between tea and coffee, enjoying a cup of matcha tea and then coffee every morning.

Ryan Seacrest also reveals that he’s had to learn to put his phone down, focus and prioritize – that not every issue needs to be dealt with immediately. He’s learned that it’s OK to be without his device at times, and to triage issues and to leave some things until later. He also believes that saying “yes” to people as often as possible, and trying to make his job look easy, are some of the secrets to his success.

That success doesn’t just include producing popular programs such as “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and a number of spin-offs. He also has his own clothing line, Distinction, and skin care line, Polished. Finally, he hasn’t hesitated to share some of his success, with his nonprofit foundation dedicated to inspiring young people, including children in pediatric hospitals.

Lawrence Bender Has Made A Name For Himself In The Entertainment Industry

Lawrence Bender is a movie producer that has worked on many well known films such as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and Good Will Hunting. The movie that he has worked on that is perhaps my favorite is An Inconvenient Truth. This is one of the first film documentaries that laid the groundwork for exposing man made climate change as scientists know it today. The documentary does an incredible job of explaining the phenomena to anyone who care to listen, regardless of whether or not they have a scientific background. As someone who considers environmental concerns as one of the top priorities for society to deal with as a whole, this film has stuck with me throughout the years. Its ability to tie factual scientific information to the world around us made an obvious statement about what we are truly up against and what we have to lose if we do nothing to combat it. Lawrence Bender’s input on the film made it what it is and for that I am grateful.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Lawrence Bender always has had an affinity for film and figured out early on that this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. After working his way up through the ranks, he would later go one to be nominated for three Oscars. The first came in 1995 for Pulp Fiction where he was up for the Best Picture award. He again received the nomination for Best Picture two years later for his work on Good Will Hunting. His most recent Academy Award winning work was in 2010 when he was nominated for Best Motion Picture Of The Year. He garnered this nomination from his work on Inglorious Basterds which featured George Clooney. Although he did not win an Oscar for any of these three works, it should be noted that a nomination in and of itself is something very few people will ever experience and is deserving of high praise in its own right. Lawrence Bender continues to be an extremely influential producer in the film industry to this day. It is anyone’s bet what he will come up with next and which of his projects will soon be gracing the silver screen.
