Ryan Seacrest extends deal as host of 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve'
Dick Clark Productions announced the deal on Wednesday (Oct. 23), though exactly how many years Seacrest will be sticking around wasn't specified. In the announcement, the tireless host said, "I think I will forever be both sentimental and grateful about my experiences with 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.'" Of fellow executive producer Allen Shapiro and the Dick Clark Productions team, he added, "I'm humbled by their continued faith, and excited to work together to create new traditions and fun moments on the show that only live television can deliver."
Seacrest has been involved with the New Year's special since 2005, becoming sole host for the first time last year after Dick Clark's passing in April 2013. The 2013 broadcast was the most-watched ever, nabbing a total 22.6 million viewers.
