CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KIIS-FM/LOS ANGELES morning star, syndicated host and TV star and producer RYAN SEACREST has been named top dog on THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER's Reality Power List.
THR wrote, "The rankings were determined by, among other things: Having a reputation for quality and innovation within the business; the indelible mark one makes on his or her shows as overseeing executive, producer, or talent; ones overall impact on pop culture, and the 'watercooler' factor: Ones ability to create dramatic, comedic and can’t-miss TV moments."
THR determined SEACREST possessed those qualities above a long list of other media power brokers, noting SEACREST offers, "an ever-expanding slate of buzzworthy programs that landed him at No.1, including: a resurgent IDOL in the wake of COWELL's high-profile departure; an EMMY win in AUGUST for the SEACREST-produced JAMIE OLIVER's Food Revolution; and four iterations of the red-hot KARDASHIAN franchise. Similarly working in his favor is the power of the RYAN SEACREST brand, which reaches an audience of more than 35 million weekly -- and that’s just on TV."
