All the Feels! Ellen K, Ryan Celebrate Her National Radio Hall of Fame Nom


All the feels! Ryan Seacrest’s former cohost Ellen K stopped by the studio on Thursday, June 7, to celebrate her 2018 National Radio Hall of Fame nomination and in true big sister / "life coach" Ellen K fashion, she grilled Ryan on his love life! 

“It does feel like home again,” Ellen said of being back in the same studio with the On Air With Ryan Seacrest team. “It’s family!”

Our fave leading lady in radio announced she was exiting On Air With Ryan Seacrest in October 2015 to join her own show, the Ellen K Morning Show on KOST 103.5 FM. She and Ryan cherish those unforgettable years together, where they experienced life’s ups and downs and achievements throughout their 12 years together. 

“God, I miss you!" Ryan gushed. "I look at this [nomination] and I think to myself that you are such a part of my life, that my great memories — when I talk about things and think back — the real years of my life, moving to Los Angeles, involve you. And I’m going to cry telling you this, but I do think back to these real years in my life to when I started at KIIS up until you went to do your show at Kost, like, these were really important years and you were there for all of it.”

Holding back happy tears, Ellen joked that she measures their time together through keeping up with his personal life. 

“Aw, well, we’ve been through about 17 girlfriends together and now a dog” Ellen joked. 

“Two dogs!” Ryan said. “I have Panda and Georgia … [Panda] is my girlfriend's,” he added of his girlfriend, Shayna.

“Oh! So now it is a blended family,” Ellen quipped. “I love it!”

Personal lives aside, Ellen is facing an amazing life moment: being nominated for the 2018 Radio Hall of Fame.
