Ryan Seacrest Signs New $60M Deal With Clear Channel

You’d think at this point, Ryan Seacrest might be ready to shed a few of his–oh I don’t know–50 billion jobs. In fact, a few months ago he hinted that he might give up his KIIS radio show when his contract with Clear Channel ended.

It turns out you can’t keep a good workaholic down. Ryan has, according to the New York Times, signed a new deal with the radio giant worth $60 million over 3 years.

The deal includes the opportunity to develop new radio content for syndication via both traditional and digital media. Also in the mix is a joint venture with Clear Channel to explore the creation of a record label, music publishing company, and live concert series.

Ryan will continue to host “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on KIIS LA, with the nationally syndicated afternoon version set to expand from 3 hours to 4. He’ll also continue as the host of American Top 40.

His previous deal with Clear Channel was signed in 2008 and was worth $35 million.

Is it humanly possible to work that hard?

UPDATE: Looks like the press release is out–no financial details were disclosed.

On the deal, Ryan says, “Clear Channel’s programming is only beginning to scratch the surface of what we can achieve together to connect with audiences and create innovative and compelling opportunities for listeners and advertisers.” he vows to help bring “the untapped potential of radio to life across a range of delivery platforms.” via THR.
