LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ryan Seacrest has been named permanent co-host of ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," three years after the ubiquitous broadcaster stepped into the breach when Clark suffered a stroke.

The annual fixture has been renamed "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest." Clark, 78, will continue as co-host.

Seacrest also hosts "American Idol" and a morning radio show in Los Angeles.
