There are several media players among the potential bidders requesting info on the possible sale of Dick Clark Productions and Ryan Seacrest is one of them.
The 37-year-old powerhouse media mogul is looking to continue to build his empire that already includes a successful production company. In addition to his American Idol hosting gig, Seacrest has upped his duties with NBC Universal to include Today show contributions, primetime specials and Olympics coverage. Those in L.A. are aware that he also hosts the morning radio show on L.A.’s KIIS-FM, which is nationally syndicated.
And let’s not forget that Ryan Seacrest Productions currently oversees E!’s Kardashian franchise, Bravo’s recently renewed Shahs of Sunset and an upcoming Jonas Brothers reality show.
Seacrest also has plans to add both scripted TV and film projects to the RSP development slate, which includes a lengthy list of unscripted projects.
So why not take over the reigns of Dick Clark Productions? That’s doable. We’ll see.
