In addition to finishing off his 11th season as the host of American Idol, Ryan continued to host his weekday radio show form LA. In addition, he kept up his duties as E!'s red carpet host. Ryan showed his true professionalism at the Oscars when Sacha Baron Cohen, as the Dictator, spilled "ashes" on Ryan in the middle of an interview. Ryan's headed to London soon to participate in NBC's coverage of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Ryan was honored at LA's Promise 2011 Gala for his work with the nonprofit, and had girlfriend Julianne Hough by his side to accept the honor.
