RYAN SEACREST has been named permanent co-host of ABC's "DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE," which has been renamed to "DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE WITH RYAN SEACREST."
SEACREST first joined "ROCKIN' EVE" in 2005, following CLARK's stroke.
"Watching 'DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN EVE' is an American tradition," said ABC ENTERTAINMENT Pres. STEPHEN MCPHERSON. "RYAN has been a tremendous part of the show the last couple of years and we're thrilled he'll be part of it for years to come."
ADELSON called the name change of the program a reflection of the success of SEACREST as a co-host.
"We are thrilled to extend RYAN's contract as co-host of the 'party of the year' with DICK," DICK CLARK PRODUCTIONS Pres. ORLY ADELSON said.
