LOS ANGELES -- (Business Wire) Ryan Seacrest, music's number one radio host in the U.S. with a weekly worldwide audience estimated at more than 20 million, will expand the nationally syndicated On Air with Ryan Seacrest to include a fourth hour of programming beginning May 4. After launching nearly a year ago on 50 radio stations, the top-rated On Air with Ryan Seacrest can now be heard on more than 130 stations in the U.S. including major cities such as New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Boston, Atlanta, Washington, D.C. and Detroit. The program can also be heard internationally in such markets as Toronto, Vancouver, Johannesburg, Singapore, Cape Town and others.

"We've seen such tremendous growth and success with the syndication of On Air in the last year," commented Premiere Radio EVP of Affiliate Marketing Julie Talbott. "Affiliates took notice as well. They saw an opportunity to expand their audiences and requested more content. We can't wait to deliver an extra hour of top entertainment news, music and interviews."

Nationally syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, the four-hour music and entertainment news program airs Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. local time. Broadcasting from his E! Studios in Hollywood, Seacrest focuses on all aspects of the entertainment industry, highlighting and interviewing top talent from the worlds of music, film, and television. In addition, listeners can visit www.RyanSeacrest.com to interact and connect with the show and get their daily entertainment and lifestyle news. The site features photos, videos and social networking.

Seacrest is no stranger to success in radio.

For the past four years, Seacrest's local radio show on KIIS-FM/Los Angeles has been the most-listened-to program in Southern California (Source: Arbitron, FA'04 to JAN'09, MSA & PPM, Cume, MF 6-10, P 12+) and consistently wins every female demo from 12-17 to 25-34.

With his thriving broadcasting career and multiple ventures in media, it's no wonder why Ryan Seacrest is at the forefront of entertainment media.
