The Daily Doings of a Ryan Seacrest Productions Intern [PHOTOS]
5AM: Wake up and get ready. You may be cranky but then you say to yourself, ‘Why be cranky when I’ll be doing awesome things at RSP today!’ Frown is turned instantly upside down.
5:45-6:45AM: Traffic, traffic, traffic. That frown is back again, but suddenly you turn on KIIS FM and the voice of Ryan brings you back to that happy place.
7AM: Git’ down to business. Check the Intern Calendar and find your pot of gold (aka assignments for the day) but be warned: expect the unexpected. TomKat divorce and prego Adele day ring a bell?
7-Noon(ish): Blog, blog, blog. Scour for breaking news, and the second you find it hunt Michael down to write a story on it.
Noon: Lunchtime! Some epic lunchtime moments:
- Joan Rivers spotted literally smelling the roses outside.
- Jason Kennedy walks by: swooning, drooling and giggling ensue.
- Intern bonding time with Michael.
- The downstairs deli!
Noon-4/5 (times may vary): Blog again! See how your previous blogs are doing; freak out if Ryan tweets about it.
End of Day: Pitch stories for the next day!
Now, this is an average day at RSP but like I mentioned earlier; expect the unexpected. Some of us interns have gotten the opportunity to attend and work some amazing events.
- Interviewing celebrities for the NBC Television Critics Association fall previews
- Red Carpet interviews at the “MTV Movie Awards” and “Teen Choice Awards“
- Escorting celebrities at gifting suites
- Complete coverage of YouTube phenoms Ryan Beatty and Cimorelli performance:
- In-studio interview with YouTubers Megan and Liz
While attending these events are beyond amazing, what we get most excited about are the Tweets, ‘likes’ and celeb @replies. From Kathy Griffin to YouTuber Avery, celebs across the twitterverse have retweeted, replied and praised our blogs. The competitive nature comes out when a Bieber, Miley or Cimorelli blog is up for grabs because we know we’ll get lot of traffic to our piece of work and on the rare occasion, Ryan himself will tweet it out.

All in all, this gig is not too shabby. Just kidding, it’s absolutely amazing; but like any job, the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it!
