The new three-year contract will keep Seacrest a top personality across all of iHeartRadio's platforms as well as an advisor and host of tentpole events.
Ryan Seacrest’s radio reign continues.
The entertainment mogul has inked a new, expanded deal with iHeartMedia. Seacrest will remain a key advisor for the company, continuing to work closely with CEO Bob Pittman and president Rich Bressler, and as a top personality across all of iHeartRadio's platforms. Seacrest also will develop new ways to connect advertisers and consumers and will provide input into all of the company’s major events and initiatives and host tent-pole events like the iHeartRadio Music Festival and iHeartRadio Music Awards.
As part of his new three-year pact, Seacrest will continue hosting and producing L.A.’s top-rated morning drive-time show for iHeart’s 102.7 KISS-FM as well as the nationally-syndicated On Air with Ryan Seacrest and American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, too. Though a Seacrest rep declined to discuss financial terms of the deal, his last pact was said to pay him $25 million; a new, expanded one likely amounts to more.
