Ryan Seacrest disappears from Real Radio
Just 18 months after Ryan Seacrest took over late nights on the Real Radio network, his show now appears to be off-air.
The syndicated show, On-Air with Ryan Seacrest, started in July 2011 across all five Real Radio stations and was extended in 2012 to a three hour slot each weeknight.
At the time, Group Programme Director John Simons said he was delighted to be bringing one of the best radio shows in the world to the UK.
The 10pm till 1am slot has now been filled by extending the evening show by two hours and bringing forward the start time for the overnight shift.
The show is made in LA for Clear Channel’s 102.7 KIIS FM and syndicated around the US on over 150 stations and around the world, including on Dublin’s 98FM Monday to Thursday 7-9pm.
Real Radio has gone through a number of changes in the last few months including the introduction of networking all but seven hours a day between the five stations and removing football content. The changes are thought to be ahead of a highly predicted re-brand to Heart later this year once new owners Global Radio can take control pending an investigation by the CC.
Real Radio has declined to comment.
