Ryan shared some other photos taken at the event, including the one that showed him posing alongside a child lying in the hospital bed.
Taylor said during the inaugural broadcast, "About two years ago, I was lucky enough to get to visit Ryan's studio at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. And what I saw when I went there was an opportunity for the kids to find excitement and express their creativity and learn about what it is to create content-whether you would like to make your own radio show or whether you want to record. It was so exciting to see the excitement that it brought to this one hospital."
"That fact that [Seacrest is] opening his tenth studio just speaks to his commitment to bettering the lives of kids who are ill, and it affects their whole family," she added. "I'm so thankful to be here when it's opening. And I just want to say thank you to Ryan for everything that he's doing to help kids and to really change the hospital experience in the best way possible. So thank you for having me. Thank you so much for inviting me today. You're amazing."
