SNEAK PEEK: Ryan Seacrest In the Morning

seasdascrest.jpg Our friends at The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet show on FOX, have been interviewing the American Idol crew this week, and they let us take a little peek into tomorrow’s chat with Ryan Seacrest.

Seacrest explains that the workaholic in him will never let him phone it in:

“When I started in the business, the only way I knew how to do it was wearing all the hats. When I started in radio, I was driving the van, doing the show, giving out key chains and selling some of the ads. So now, when I host the show or present a show, I really like to know the why and the who…and spend time with people. Even with Idol, I’m here all day and I watch the contestants rehearse. Then, we all show up and do it live…that’s the only way I know how to do it.

Apparently, he was always this way:

“I started doing the pledge of allegiance…hosting the pep rally … doing the school announcements … I mean, that was sort of my practice.”

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be school announcers.

Want more? Tune in tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. on channel 11.
