Ryan Seacrest is contributing back to society by founding the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit 501 organization, that enables children to experience what it is like to be inside of a broadcast center. The center allows young people who are visiting the hospital to become excited, while learning the different aspects of a media center. Learning how to use the equipment inside of a media center can be a motivating thing. Patients can watch live broadcasting in person, or via a closed circuit network from inside their room. They can be a moving experience for many patients, while recovering.
Local schools of journalism can also use these locations to allow students to gain hands on experience. It let’s the students see first hand all the work that goes into the development of live broadcasts and programming. Many types of shows can take place within these studios that are located in various pediatric hospitals. For example, an interview of a famous person, patient or doctor can take place. The studio will start from the beginning to the end to show what actually takes place for an interview.
What really can be enjoyable are the live performances by celebrities. To have a celebrity visit a hospital to cheer up children you may be fighting an illness can bring quite a bit of encouragement. Ryan Seacrest understands this, which is why, he insists on pushing forward, setting up studios in as many pediatric hospitals as possible. For a patient to be able to say that they were there to see a live radio show hosted or to learn how to be a DJ means the world. Patients and interns from local colleges can participate in learning how to use the DJ equipment. So not only do patients get to play all of their favorite music, but they also get to show off their skills when using the equipment.
