As if he didn’t already have enough on his plate, presenter / producer / radio host Ryan Seacrest is joining NBC’s Today show.
Seacrest, best known as American Idol presenter, told Today show’s Matt Lauer the plan “is for me to join the NBC family and continue to have a role at the E! Network. The first assignment will be to join the primetime team for the Olympics on NBC.”
The move was not unexpected.
When Lauer asked if he could see himself taking over at Today as co-anchor, Seacrest responded: “I don’t know. I see YOU doing this for as long as you want to. So the question is: how long will YOU be on the Today show?”
Seacrest’s Idol contract ends after Season 11 but he plans to stay on as host.
He also co-hosts E! News alongside Giuliana Rancic, and also oversees Ryan Seacrest Productions, which produces the Kardashian reality shows and Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset.
