NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Seacrest is sticking around as host of "American Idol."
The Fox network said Monday night that Seacrest "will continue" as host of the hit singing-competition series, over which he has presided since its premiere a decade ago. The network gave no specifics about the length of his new contract, or any monetary details.
Seacrest called the show's run until now "a wild ride," and said he is excited it will continue with him on board.
Both a show-biz personality and production mogul, Seacrest recently announced a new addition to his many duties. He will work for NBC, where this summer he will take part in coverage of the London Olympics.
