He is heralded as a cultural icon who hosted five incarnations of the Pyramid game show from 1973 to 1988.

Clark introduced many Americans to rock'n'roll through American Bandstand.

The show gave artists like including Ike & Tina Turner, Smokey Robinson, and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Simon & Garfunkel, Iggy Pop, Prince, Talking Heads, and Madonna exposure to audiences for the first time.

Singer Paul Anka claimed that Bandstand was responsible for creating a "youth culture."

In 1973, he created and produced the annual American Music Awards show, similar to the Grammy Awards.

Seacrest's radio career began back in 1991 when he started working the overnight shift at a local radio station in Georgia.

From there, he moved to Hollywood in 1993 to pursue a career full-time and ended up hosting ESPN's "Radical Outdoor Challenge."

In 2002, Seacrest got his big break and was asked to host a new competition-type reality show on Fox which is famously known today as American idol.

After hosting the show for seven years, he then signed a $45 million contract with CKX to continue the role, making him the highest-paid reality television host at that time.

Over the years he has continued his career with various hosting adventures and has been able to amass an estimated net worth of almost $450 million with a reported annual salary of $75 million.
