According to celebritynetworth, new “Live” host, Ryan Seacrest has a staggering net worth of at least $350 million and annual income of $65 million! So safe to say the workaholic host is not taking Regis Philbin‘s old gig for the money!
Seacrest, 42, is probably best known as the host of popular singing competition American Idol. He is also Casey Kasem’s successor as the host of American Top 40, the legendary “countdown” radio program popularized by Kasem and continued by Seacrest today.
Seacrest’s big break happened in 1993, when he landed the job of hosting Radical Outdoor Challenge on ESPN. One year later, in 1994, Seacrest began hosting Gladiators 2000, a children’s spin-off of the popular athletic competition American Gladiators.
Eventually, Seacrest was seen as the host of NBC Saturday Night at the Movies, answering trivia questions and generally “hosting” the popular theatrical films broadcast on the network.
