TV and radio personality Ryan Seacrest signed a two-year contract with NBC Friday, agreeing to join the "Today" show as a special correspondent.
NBCUniversal Chief Executive Steve Burke said of bringing Seacrest on board, "We look forward to his continued role on E! and to having him appear on many new places across NBCUniversal, including the Today show and at the Olympics…. This is a great example of how NBCUniversal is able to provide the perfect home for some of the best people in the business."
Last week Seacrest renewed his contract with "American Idol," signing on as host for two more years for $30 million.
