Ryan Seacrest has been making really good career decisions ever since he landed the American Idol gig that has made him a huge star. He’s parlayed that fame into various businesses that is making him richer than ever. And he’s about to add another feather to his cap.

Seacrest is about to launch his own cable network.

He has recently partnered with Mark Cuban, Creative Artists Agency and AEG to reprogram Cuban’s HDNet and transform it into AXS TV.

The partnership, which will initially be good for three years, will offer audiences a behind the scenes view of what happens in red carpet events, awards shows and music events.

Ryan Seacrest has this to say about his new venture: “HDNet is the perfect partner to help us translate our vision into a reality, giving us an instant reach into 35 million homes when we rebrand the channel and launch AXS TV.”

Brian Dunkleman must be kicking his own ass right about now.
