Ryan Seacrest Rings In ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ Pact

Deal extends host's run on special he joined in 2005

Ryan Seacrest has extended his deal to host and exec produce the annual “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” special on ABC.

Multi-year pact continues an association that began in 2005. Seacrest became sole host with last year’s telecast following Clark’s death. Extending Seacrest’s deal for the high-profile special was a priority for the new regime at Dick Clark Prods., led by prexy Allen Shapiro.

“Allen and the DCP team, as well as everyone at ABC are my valued partners in carrying Dick’s vision forward,” Seacrest said. “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.”
