Ryan Seacrest opens media center at Children’s Hospital

    Come summer, kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will be able to act as DJ and conduct celebrity interviews thanks to an unlikely benefactor.

    Radio and reality TV host Ryan Seacrest is launching a media center in the hospital’s Colket Atrium.

    The American Idol host chose the hospital as the second location for the closed-circuit program, The Voice, courtesy of the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.

    Dan Gross reports Seacrest will make multiple appearances at the center, and sometimes host his radio show from The Voice at CHOP.
