American Idol's Ryan Seacrest is set to become the richest host of reality television after he reportedly inked a deal increasing his paycheck to $45 million for three years. That's triple his current salary according to Hollywood Reporter.
Seacrest is slated to work for CKX exclusively dealing only with broadcast-network duties. CKX, by the way, is the parent company of 19 Entertainment which is the producer of Idol.
In such case, the award-winning host can still work with Comcast and as E! Entertainment's main anchor. He can also continue his other venture in producing E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
