Ryan Seacrest Celebrates A Decade On KIIS-FM And AT40
February 26, 2014

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announces that Emmy-winning television and radio host, Ryan Seacrest, is celebrating 10 years of being on-air on KIIS-FM/Los Angeles, as well as a decade of hosting American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest.    

In February 2004 Seacrest took the reigns as host of KIIS-FM's morning show and since then it has become No. 1 in Los Angeles and the most-listened-to morning show in Southern California. Broadcasting from Hollywood, Seacrest, Ellen K. and the on-air crew focuses on all aspects of the entertainment industry, highlighting and interviewing top talent from the worlds of music, film and television. 

The KIIS team commemorated the last decade in this fun video that features celebrities, listeners, professional dancers and KIIS staff. Filmed in New York City and Los Angeles, check it out here: http://youtu.be/YImup67BRac.

The top-rated music and entertainment news program airs Monday through Friday from 5-10 a.m. PST. In addition, on March 1 and 2, Seacrest will celebrate 10 years as host of the nationally syndicated No. 1 countdown show, American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest.  Listeners can visit www.RyanSeacrest.com and www.kiisfm.com to interact and connect with the show, and get their daily entertainment and lifestyle news as well as a look at old photos and exclusive special 10-year anniversary content. 

American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest is syndicated by Premiere Networks. Each week since 2004, Seacrest counts down the Top 40 songs and interviews the biggest stars in entertainment. The show has more than five million weekly listeners (Source: Nielsen Audio, SP’13, Nationwide, Exact Times, Weekly Reach, P 12+) and can be heard on nearly 500 radio stations worldwide. . 

“Ten years have felt like ten minutes – it has truly flown by. I’m so grateful to everyone at Clear Channel and for my dedicated KIIS and AT40 teams, as all of our success has so much to do with their passion and hard work,” said Seacrest. “Radio has been my dream since I was a kid, and I’m still pinching myself every day I’m on the air. I love laughing with our listeners, hearing their stories, and being part of their daily lives.”

“Back in 2004 when we began looking for a new morning show, Ryan was doing afternoons at KYSR. It's hard work to establish a new morning show, but Ryan had full confidence he could do the job. His entire team threw everything they had into the show and it became the No. 1 show in Los Angeles in less than a year and today the most listened to morning show for 10 straight years,” said John Ivey, SVP, CCM+E and PD of KIIS-FM. 

“Fans love Ryan’s quick wit and his relatable Southern boy charm that still comes out when talking about his childhood or calling his Mom on-air to check in.  He has always been a superb celebrity interviewer and now because of his own celebrity status he can go even deeper with them because they have real relationships and feel comfortable with him. Ryan gets a certain twinkle in his eye when he has a great interview coming in like Michele Obama or when I tell him the Wango Tango or Jingle Ball line-up before anyone else. The key to his success at KIIS, is that in the wake of his numerous achievements, he continues to be fully engaged and excited about his show and radio every day – and listeners can tell.”
