The new $45 million for three-year contract will reportedly make Seacrest exclusive to CKX for TV primetime, hosting "Idol" or any other CKX-produced show that might follow.
Previously, Seacrest earned slightly less than $5 million per season on the hit FOX reality competition.
Reps for the producers and for Seacrest had no comment when contacted by the trade mag, but the deal is expected to be announced today.
