Ryan Seacrest is the Chairman and Founder of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. He is also a creative entrepreneur and holds preeminent positions in broadcast and cable television, as well as nationally syndicated and local radio. After spending significant time visiting patients and their families in various children’s hospitals, Ryan was inspired to bring a hands-on, multi-media studio experience into pediatric institutions. He heard from patients and parents alike how there was a need for additional things to do, especially during long stays in the hospital, and it led him to building Seacrest Studios with a goal of providing an entertaining and positive distraction. On radio, Ryan is host of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, a #1 nationally syndicated LA morning drive-time show for iHeartMedia's 102.7 KIIS-FM, as well as a nationally-syndicated Top 40 radio show. Ryan is co-host and executive producer of the Disney/ABC nationally syndicated entertainment talk show LIVE with Kelly and Ryan.

Additionally, RSP produces Shades of Blue, an NBC drama series, and Insatiable for Netflix. The company also produced the Emmy Award-winning reality series Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.
