Ryan went on to add that his first job for the network will be to join the prime time news team covering this summer’s Olympic games in London.
The two carried on joking about whether or not Seacrest will be joining the Today Show, and Lauer finally said, “Ryan and I are friendly. We have talked about this. We’ve joked about this. There is no tension here.”
But don’t worry, American Idol fans — the blond-haired host isn’t leaving behind his bread and butter anytime soon. “I plan to stay there,” Seacrest said. “I think I’ll have an official announcement very, very soon, but I expect to be on that show.”
What do you think of Ryan’s big announcement? Is the show host spreading himself too thin?
