Larry King, Ryan Seacrest -- Radio Silence

8/26/2010 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry King and Ryan Seacrest have been secretly plotting to relaunch Larry's radio career ... TMZ has learned.

0826_larry_ryan_EX_Getty_01
Sources tell TMZ ... Ryan is talking to Larry about producing/distributing a new Larry King syndicated radio show, as part of a mega-media deal Seacrest is creating.  BTW, that's how Larry became famous -- radio.

Ryan, whose radio deal with Clear Channel is up in November, has been around town talking to big wigs about creating a multi-media empire, including TV and the Internet. 

Ryan was at dinner last night with DreamWorks Animation Chief Jeffrey Katzenberg -- and we're told they were discussing the plan.

Those damn rich people ...

am I the only one that thinks King is the worst interviewer on the planet and if he didn't have his timeslot on CNN no one would bother with him. "A tsunami, that has to do with water right? "

To one of The Sttion FIre victims: "SO what is like being in a coma?" Response- "I don't know- I was in a coma." \

This dude Seacrest must have some major dirt on the big players in Hollywood, because he sucks and has no talent and everyone hates him, yet he keeps getting jobs.
Apparently no one else is supposed to have a damn job because he wants it all.

Guarantee you he is a major reason that a lot of people, including myself have stopped watching American Idol.

CNN should hire Seacrest to replace King. King needs a full retirement. He is old and he has family issues, serious family issues. If Seacrest is not offered King's CNN show, Harvey should get it.

Seacrest is a conniving little weasel. He bullied Dunkleman out of Idol so he could be in the lone spotlight. When you watch him on ABC's New Year's bash you can see him kissing **** Clark's ass and just waiting for him to kick the bucket so he can take over the show. He's doing the same thing with Larry King now.

Secrest is the most dry "personality" there is out there. He must be blowing his way to the top or something. There is just no way he should have so many opportunities. His interviewing skills are terrible! Seacrest belongs on medium market radio at best. He is no **** Clarke for sure.

Larry is too old now. He never was a very good interviewer. He constantly talks over people and does not wait for them to give a full answer before he asks another question. So very annoying. Just retire already!

Is it Larry or Larry's career that is on life support? I'm confused...

Seacrest is as lacking in talent, looks, personalty and appeal as King is. They are both insipid--nauseating, actually.

I never heard Larry King on the radio, but he is TERRIBLE on TV. He talks 'over' people and from some of the questions he asks, he obvously has not read their books.

Retire, Larry, with your millions.

I only watch his show occasionally in spite of Larry, not because of him.

LARRY IS A BORING FVCKFEST AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN, ESP. ON TV. HIS BORING DEMEANOR, MORE BORING VOICE AND LACKLUSTRE QUESTIONING HAS SEALED HIS DOUCHE BAG FATE. REALLY, WHO WOULD LISTEN TO HIM ON RADIO?? THAT CRAGGEDTY VOICE WOULD TURN ANY LISTENER OFF. RETIRE LARRY AND DONT COME BACK.

We don't want to see any more Larry King, (the ugly little scrawny worm we've had to listen to and look at for way too many years) on TV.
Figures, Seacrest the a****** that he is would want to syndicate a lousey interviewer and very hard to look at King, when we were all so releived to not have to have his horrible TV show on any more.
I wish you would just disappear Seacrest you weasel. I still can't understand how any beautiful woman could marry that frog Larry King and have to look at that mess every morning. Dear God! It's got to be the money because it sure ain't the looks.
Yo, TMZ, how about putting a variety of actors on your website instead of the same old friggin' people day after day.
WE ARE ALL SICK TO DEATH OF LINDSAY. Give it a rest for God's sake. There are thousands of actors and actresses in LA - put somebody else in the news once in a while.
