Television personality Ryan Seacrest has been the host for “Live from the Red Carpet” for so long that it’s a surprise that he’s decided to leave the venture for greener pastures.


Ryan Seacrest started hosting red carpet events for E! in 2007. He’s mingled with other stars, rubbed shoulders with them at the Oscars Awards to the Grammy Awards, and even the Golden Globes.

The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host has actually helmed dozens of red carpet shows for E!. Now, after hosting the network’s “Live from the Red Carpet” for years, Seacrest is leaving as the longtime host.

In an Instagram post, the television personality shared a photo of himself on one of his hosting gigs for E!. In the image, he smiled while wearing a black tuxedo with a matching bowtie.

The star held an E! microphone in one hand while his other one was tucked into his pant's pocket. He revealed in the caption that he’d been hosting “Live from the Red Carpet” for fourteen years!


Seacrest explained that he was leaving the post to “move on to new adventures.” He confessed that he would miss the show’s behind-the-scenes crew and his hosting partner, Giuliana Rancic, concluding by saying:

“Thanks to everyone for watching all these years.”


E! confessed in a statement that they considered the co-host to be part of their family. The network noted how the star had played a vital role in giving viewers insight into some of Hollywood’s biggest nights.

E! shared how appreciative it was for Seacrest’s contributions and vowed that he would always remain a part of its family. Besides his hosting work with the network, the co-host also holds other positions.


He’s the producer for the reality show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" for one. Since "American Idol" began, the star had worked as its host from when it aired on Fox up until now on ABC.

The following week Seacrest appeared on his talk show with Ripa and gave thanks to those who sent him well-wishes.

The television personality also hosts his own radio show titled "On Air with Ryan Seacrest." He co-hosts "Live with Kelly and Ryan” with Kelly Ripa, who called him a humble person during an “ET” interview since 2017.


However, working so much finally caught up with him last summer. While hosting “American Idol’s” finale from his Los Angeles home, his fans shared their concern when he appeared visibly tired.

The following week he appeared on his talk show with Ripa and thanked those who sent him well-wishes. The star, who suffered a health scare related to exhaustion, shared he’d gotten a day off from work.
