RYAN Seacrest is most famously known as an American television presenter, producer, and is the co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan alongside Kelly Ripa.
Seacrest extended his contract with iHeartMedia in September 2021.
Where is Ryan Seacrest this morning?
Amidst the surge in Covid-19 cases, Ryan Seacrest and his Live! co-host Kelly Ripa started off New Year by filming from their homes.
"Good morning, everyone! Don't adjust your dials," Ripa said as the show kicked off.
"We're coming to you from the studio, which we made to look like two separate bedrooms. It is January 3, 2022."
Seacrest responded, "Are you sure? It seems like January 3, 2021, because we're back at home, under an abundance of caution."
This is the first time Seacrest and Ripa have been remote since the early days of the pandemic.
The co-hosts first announced in March 2020 they would be filming the show from their homes but returned to the studio five months later.
On their first day working remote in 2020, Ripa said, I have a few friends now that have been diagnosed with COVID-19," Ripa said. "And they are texting me as we speak saying that they have no sense of smell and taste."
Seacrest added, "We are anxious, we are a little bit afraid. We at times can get frustrated, but we're trying to make the best of it. And we are so happy that you're here with us today."
Although two years later Ripa and Seacrest are back at home, this time it is out of caution, rather than fear.
During their virtual show last week Seacrest said although it is 2022, "It seems like January 3, 2021, because we're back at home, under an abundance of caution."
