Recently, Khloe Kardashian announced that she will be taking to the airwaves in Dallas with her new show "The Mix Up with Khloe." Whether or not people think this is a good thing is up for debate, the third female Kardashian sister is not the first celebrity to branch out into the world of radio. Other stars (including her producer Ryan Seacrest) have found great success on the air, while others simply faded away for various reasons.
Springer's name will forever be associated with daytime TV, yet after years of hearing his name shouted each time a fight broke out on his popular daytime show, Jerry branched out into radio in 2005 with "Springer on the Radio." Unfortunately, the same long lasting success that was found on television was not meant for radio, with the show going off the air after just two years. The reason: Springer was too busy with other projects that popped up thanks to his run on "Dancing with the Stars."
Some celebrities use the radio to jump start sagging careers. Take Whoopi Goldberg, who has an Academy Award under her belt as well as some major hit movies. After years of success, the roles began to dry up, and Goldberg was faced with doing whatever she could to avoid going bankrupt. Things began to look up in 2006, when her morning radio show "Wake Up With Whoopi" was picked up, as well as becoming a panelist on "The View." Whoopi still continues to chat up a storm on the morning talk-fest, however her radio show was cancelled in 2008.
The man responsible for bringing the Kardashians to the world of television, the E! host had an extensive radio background even before "American Idol" helped make him one of the hardest working men in show business. In 1994 he hosted a popular radio show named "Ryan Seacrest for the Ride Home," which became its station's number one show, propelling it to national syndication. With the increasing success of "Idol," the ubiquitous host moved on to other high profile radio spots, such as "America's Top 40" and "On Air with Ryan Seacrest."
