His father served as a lieutenant in the US Army and his grandfather, Henry Gene Skeen, was a major general in the US Army. His mother told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Instead of playing with G.I. Joes or Cowboys and Indians, Ryan would always have a little microphone and do shows in the house."

At age 16, while still attending high school, Seacrest won an internship at 94.1 WSTR (FM), in Atlanta, with Tom Sullivan, who trained him in the many aspects of radio. When a regular DJ called in sick, Sullivan put him on the air for the first show of his broadcasting career. Seacrest was given the weekend overnight shift at WSTR.

He continued his radio show at a local Athens station. Seacrest left the university at age 19 and moved to Hollywood to pursue his broadcasting career.

I don’t pretend to play basketball because I wanna feel like one of the guys. I wanna lie in the sun and relax.” – Ryan Seacrest
