The Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF), a non-profit dedicated to inspiring youth through entertainment and education-focused initiatives, has relocated its headquarters permanently to Nashville from Los Angeles.
Additionally, a group of entertainment industry advisors has been appointed to help support the Foundation’s mission, including: Scott Borchetta, President, CEO & Founder, Big Machine Label Group; Nicki Farag, Executive Vice President, Promotion, Def Jam Records; John Ivey, President, CHR Programming Strategy at iHeartMedia; Allison Kaye, President, SB Projects; Debra O’Connell, President & General Manager at WABC-TV; and Gary Spangler, Executive Vice President, Promotion, Republic Records.
The Ryan Seacrest Foundation has already arranged for hundreds of celebrities to visit patients across the country at its Seacrest Studios, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Usher, Luke Bryan and Camila Cabello. Additionally, the newly appointed advisors will join the Foundation’s current celebrity ambassadors, pop star and actress Sabrina Carpenter along with singer-songwriter Charlie Puth as well as their former ambassadors Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas, to help the Foundation continue to cultivate unique entertainment experiences for patients and their families in children’s hospitals.
The RSF industry advisors will help the Foundation expand its impact and enhance its multi-media programming in their state-of-the-art media broadcast centers – Seacrest Studios – in children’s hospitals across the country. Advisors will work with the Seacrest family and the Foundation staff to help generate awareness of its mission, bring celebrity talent to visit patients at Seacrest Studios, as well as drive development and fundraising opportunities.
“We’re honored to have assembled a talented group of industry executives, who have been generously supporting our Foundation for years, to join us officially as advisors to help us advance our efforts and elevate our network of Seacrest Studios,” said Meredith Seacrest, Ryan Seacrest Foundation Executive Director/COO. “We’re also excited to call Nashville our new home, which isn’t far from our Seacrest Studio at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.”
