Ryan Seacrest Eyeing VH1 Soul for His Own Network
Move over, Oprah. Ryan Seacrest is taking over the world! Well, a network at least.
The American Idol host is in talks to take over MTV Networks' fledging R&B network VH1 Soul to create his own cable network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
How many jobs can Ryan Seacrest have?
The news comes nearly a year after Seacrest began planning to launch a network, which would feature broadcasts of AEG's concerts and series produced by Seacrest. Besides emceeing Idol, the 36-year-old has an E! News gig, hosts the On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio show and produces Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Seacrest could be going the same route as Oprah Winfrey. The inspirational talk show host took over the Discovery Health network in order to launch OWN earlier this year.
