How did Ryan Seacrest build his net worth?
Ryan Seacrest's net worth has been built on his media host and producer career. His empire, which spans entertainment and business, pulls in around $60 to $80 million annually for him.
His sunny personality, easy style, and good looks have seen him host a myriad of shows on TV and radio over the years.
He is perhaps most known as the presenter of "American Idol," which he started hosting in 2002. Seacrest is a familiar face on the red carpet for "E! Live from the Red Carpet," commenting on celebrity fashions before the Oscars. According to Forbes, he took home a $1 million paycheck to host Dick Clark's "Rockin' New Year's Eve" on TV.
However, his credits as the executive producer and creator of well-known TV shows, including the smash hit Kardashian franchise, which he created and co-produced, have earned him the big bucks.
His radio career spans decades. In 2004, he began hosting and producing three radio shows: "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," executive producing and hosting "American Top 40," and co-presenting with Sisani on "KIIS-FM." Additionally, he has even got several film credits to his name.
Since 2017, Seacrest has been broadcasting at WABC-TV in New York, where "Live with Kelly and Ryan" is produced.
Did we mention that Seacrest partnered with Macy's to exclusively sell his clothing and accessories collection called "Ryan Seacrest Distinction"? Just another string to his bow and another income stream.
Seacrest has received Emmy Award nominations for "American Idol" and "Live with Kelly and Ryan" and won an Emmy for producing "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" in 2010 and was nominated again in 2012.
How has Ryan Seacrest spent his wealth?
Seacrest bought a 10,000-square-foot five-bedroom Mediterranean villa-style abode previously occupied by Kevin Costner and Richard Dreyfuss for $11.5 million in 2006.
Seacrest also used to own a 9,000-square-foot seven-bedroom $36.5 million mansion he bought from Ellen DeGeneres in 2012. He sold it for $51 million in 2022.
But he's given all those up in favor of an opulent New York City apartment that costs him $75,000 a month and makes it easier to commute to his job.
Seacrest allegedly doesn't buy cars but leases them — something Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was also fond of — and we aren't sure if he owns a Range Rover or Bentley Spur, both of which he has been spotted driving around in.
