On Monday, July 29th The Ryan Seacrest Foundation dedicated Seacrest Studios at Levine Children's Hospital. The foundation consists of Ryan, his sister Meredith and their parents Gary ans Connie Seacrest. Together they have created a working studio that gives patients the chance to broadcast throughtout the hospital via closed-circuit television and explore the world of radio.  It is the fifth studio opened by the foundation.

On hand were special guests NASCAR driver Martin Truex, Jr. and teen singing sensation Austin Mahone, to assist in christining the new studio. They were joined by former cancer patient Darien Gray and patient Carmen Diaz.

Below is a portion of Ryan's opening remarks, as he prepared for the inaugural broadcast, and to give the children of Levine Children's Hospital a place where they can spend time outside their rooms and enjoy the high-tech studio.
