Ryan Seacrest will return as the host of “American Idol” for the music competition’s third season on ABC.
Seacrest will also continue hosting and executive producing “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” his nationally syndicated L.A. morning drive-time radio show. He also serves as co-host and executive producer on ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” as well as ABC’s annual live show “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.”
The news comes after it was announced in August that the judging panel of Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie would all be returning for the new season of “American Idol” as well. Seacrest has been with “American Idol” since it launched on Fox back in 2002.
“’American Idol’ has been my home for 17 seasons and I can’t wait to return to the stage,” said Seacrest. “It’s the greatest gift to be able to play a part in discovering new talent with a franchise that has been such a relevant part of American culture for so many years.”
