Ellen K’s career in radio began at Purdue University when she landed an internship at a local radio station. From the moment she began talking to listeners on the air about their lives, she knew she was hooked. Over the next decade, radio promotions came fast for Ellen as she was recruited from her small Indiana surroundings to San Diego, then San Francisco, and finally Los Angeles, where she became the morning co-host at KIIS/fm with the legendary Rick Dees.
Ellen co-hosted with Wayne Brady on his Emmy Award-winning talk show, while holding down a correspondent role for Extra and remaining on air daily with Rick Dees at KIIS, a show that won her dozens of Marconi and Billboard Radio Awards. (Ellen with Ryan Seacrest)

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were spotted getting cozy last weekend in Carpenteria, just south of Santa Barbara. The pair spent three days away from LA where they supposedly went out for sushi, shopped for fruit and flowers, and had some alone time. The two were co-stars on That 70’s Show where a source reveals that Ashton “was so in love with her for a while when they worked together. He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe. It never happened, but I’m not surprised by this at all.” Although reps have denied their romance, Mila has also been spending the night at Kutcher’s Hollywood Hills home.
