Seacrest co-host re-ups with KIIS.
A contract extension will allow Ellen K to mark her 25th anniversary at KIIS-FM, Los Angeles in 2015. The co-host of the station’s “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” morning show joined KIIS in April 1990. A new contract extension keeps her at the station through 2015.
The personality received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in May, making her the first female FM radio personality to receive that award. “Ellen is a total pro,” Clear Channel SVP of programming John Ivey says. “She is genuine, honest and compassionate on the air and off, making her relatable to the audience and adored by the staff and management alike. We love Ellen and we are thrilled she’s extended her commitment to KIIS.”
“I can’t imagine my mornings beginning with anyone else but Ellen K, as she’s the consummate co-host,” Seacrest says. “She is wicked smart, funny, and cares about people. She’s amazing in her zeal and professionalism, and I’m excited she’s extending her time at KIIS.”
