On Air with Ryan Seacrest is the name of an American syndicated radio program hosted by Ryan Seacrest. As of 2010, the daily morning radio show airs on Los Angeles top 40 station KIIS-FM and was launched at the same time as the television show with the same name, although Seacrest had hosted a similar show in afternoon drive on sister station KYSR from 1995 until 2003. The TV series ran for several months in 2004, but nationwide syndication of the radio program would not start until 2008, where a majority of its affiliates air it in the middays or afternoons.
The show is broadcast from the E! Entertainment Studios in the Mid-Wilshire District of Los Angeles. On Air with Ryan Seacrest is also syndicated through Premiere Radio Networks on over 150 radio stations nationwide and in Canada.
About the show
The radio program, featuring a former local news correspondent by the name of Ellen K., includes many popular segments such as Manny Streetz, Commander Chuck with Traffic, and the ever popular '60 Seconds of Sleaze' is the entertainment news segment provided by Ellen K. This segment was actually originated by Seacrest's predecessor on KIIS-FM, Rick Dees, in a segment called "Dees Sleaze." One of the most popular segments is the fictional 'Ryan's Roses': where "listeners" call in with the suspicion that their significant other is cheating. An 'On Air' staff member then calls the accused cheater imitating a florist who wishes to offer them a dozen free roses to be sent to anybody of their choosing. Often the accused cheater will send the flowers to the "wrong person," which often results in the "truth" pouring out and an argument between the couple, moderated by Seacrest. This segment is based on the common radio skit War of the Roses (radio show), which has been used on hundreds of radio shows around the country since the mid-1990s.
