RYAN SEACREST will countdown several more New Year's. He remains in place as Host/Executive Producer of "DICK CLARK's NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE WITH RYAN SEACREST." It's a multi-year deal for the media mogul.
SEACREST joined the annual program in 2005 as co-host to an ailing CLARK. Last year, SEACREST officially had the baton passed to him, named sole host on the first NEW YEAR'S EVE broadcast after CLARK's death.
SEACREST said, "I think I will forever be both sentimental and grateful about my experiences with 'DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE.' ALLEN[SHAPIRO, Co-Exec. Producer] and the DCP team, as well as everyone at ABC are my valued partners in carrying DICK's vision forward. I'm humbled by their continued faith, and excited to work together to create new traditions and fun moments on the show that only live television can deliver."
ABC is the broadcast home for "ROCKIN' EVE," which airs on DECEMBER 31st.
