Ryan Seacrest Brings Interactive Media Center to CHOP

The radio star's plan to help Philly's sick kids

CHOP patients will soon have a new way to de-stress during hospital stays: The Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) has selected CHOP as the site of an interactive broadcast multi-media center. Named “The Voice,” the center will give pint-sized patients a creative outlet by allowing them to engage in activities related to radio, TV and new media, including everything from getting a chance to be disc jockey for a day to broadcasting their favorite songs. Patients will also be able to listen to the peer-driven shows and call in requests.

Sure beats what I remember from my sister’s childhood hospital stays: hours upon hours of Ms. Pac-Man.
