If you’ve been following the tabloids for the last 6 months you no doubt know that Larry King has a huge man crush on radio and TV personality Ryan Seacrest, as he has on many occasions tried to get Seacrest to replace him as he exits “Larry King Live” and now we’ve learned that the latter may be attempting to revive the talk show hosts presence on radio.
According to TMZ, Seacrest wants King to help produce and distribute a Larry King syndicated radio show, the deal would be part of a bigger “mega-media” deal that Ryan Seacrest is attempting to put together.
Seacrest has become a household name thanks in large part to his hosting duties with American Top 40 and his hosting duties on American Idol and now his deal with radio superpower Clear Channel is about to end in November and apparently he wants to branch out even further.
TMZ says his most recent move towards media domination occurred last night when he was seen at dinner with DreamWorks Animation Chief Jeffrey Katzenberg.
It’s funny, the two biggest winners from American Idol so far have been Simon Cowell and now Ryan Seacrest.
