Ryan Seacrest is one of the most well-known tv personalities. At a young age, he knew that he wanted to be a disk jockey. He started the career path as soon as he could by doing the school announcements at Dunwoody High School. Back then, he had braces, glasses and was a tad overweight. The peers who made fun of him then indeed aren’t anymore. He landed an internship at a radio station in Atlanta while attending the University of Georgia.

In the mid-‘90s, he moved to Los Angeles and started his radio show called “Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home”. The show was successful and lasted well into the 2000s. In 2003 “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” began. The next year American Top 40 became his new job, taking over for one of his favorite hosts, Casey Kasem.

A source close to Seacrest says that the two are still tight and want to support each other, but their romantic relationship has ended. This split is, however, apparently their third time breaking up.
