Report: Ryan Seacrest wants another daytime talk show

ryan-seacrest-getty-idol.jpgRyan Seacrest could be looking for yet another job -- jumping back into the realm of daytime TV, where his last stab didn't work out very well.

Seacrest, who hosts "American Idol" and "E! News" on TV, has a highly rated local morning radio show in Los Angeles and also does the syndicated "American Top 40," reportedly wants to try his hand at hosting a daytime talk show again. His last effort, "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest," lasted only a few months in 2004.

According to LARadio.com, Seacrest and CBS are sidling up to talks for Seacrest about hosting and executive producing a show that would premiere in the fall of 2011. It would also likely be a package deal that would include his radio shows as well.

The rumblings about Seacrest making a move come as the end of his current radio contract nears its end. He's currently with KIIS-FM, a Clear Channel-owned station, but his deal there expires in November.

Because the idea of Seacrest moving to CBS is pretty much just an idea at the moment, there's no telling how it might affect his work on "Idol" or on-air with E!, where his company also produces several series.
