Ryan Seacrest Signs “Groundbreaking” NBC Deal

Ryan Seacrest Signs "Groundbreaking" NBC Deal 3


Dick Clark would have been so proud.

Ryan  Seacrest, who was previously announced as a member of NBC’s Summer Olympics coverage team, has inked a multiplatform  deal with NBCUniversal that will keep him in the family fold for two more  years.

But just what does NBC mean when it calls Seacrest’s new contract  “groundbreaking”?

For starters, in addition to his continuing red carpet duties and post as  managing editor of E! News, Seacrest will have an increased presence on  NBC’s news, entertainment and sports programming, from the Today show  to prime-time events.

“Today, I am humbled to have the confidence of [network executives] Steve  Burke, Ted Harbert, Bonnie Hammer and many others within the NBCUniversal  family, to strategically extend my relationship to encompass NBC programming,”  the 37-year-old host-of-all-trades said in a statement.

Oh, and he’s still got his morning show on KIIS-FM and at least two more years of hosting American Idol on his  plate. Is anyone else craving a power nap just thinking about it?!
