Ryan Seacrest’s special appeal for MDA Labor Day Telethon is confirmed

HollywoodNews.com: With just three words, MDA Telethon co-host Nigel Lythgoe (American Idol + So You Think You Can Dance) today confirmed that his long-time friend, Ryan Seacrest, has agreed to make a special appeal for the MDA Labor Day Telethon that will be telecast by more than 150 television stations and streamed worldwide at mda.org on Sunday, Sept. 4, between 6 p.m. and midnight.

“He said yes!” is how Lythgoe let MDA Executive Producer Jerry Weinberg know that the multifaceted entertainment personality wants to tell America about the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s extraordinary summer camp program that annually serves thousands of young people with progressive muscle diseases.

Final production details are still being worked out with the jet-setting television production company executive, explained MDA’s Weinberg, “but we are very confident that Ryan Seacrest will find a way to help advance our lifesaving mission with a special message for the tens of millions expected to tune in to the MDA Labor Day Telethon.

“Ryan has an amazing ability to communicate effectively with many generations of television viewers. Having him on our 2011 Telethon is a significant development for the families we serve,” added Weinberg.
