“With Ryan at the helm for close to ten years now, E!'s Live From the Red Carpet series has truly become a mainstay of the network and we are very happy to continue this partnership,” said Frances Berwick, President Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "Ryan's close relationships with many of the celebrities on these carpets combined with his command over all things entertainment and pop culture, makes for interviews that are surprising, compelling and always entertaining - and our viewers love his spontaneous moments on the carpet!"
