Dick Clark Dies at 82
America’s oldest teenager has died. Legendary television host and producer Dick Clark passed away earlier today from a massive heart attack, according to his agent. He was 82.
During his almost seven decades in show business, Clark became a television institution thanks to his duties as host of such venerable shows as American Bandstand, Pyramid, and his annual Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. A stroke in 2004 forced him to cease most of his television appearances, though he continued to co-host the New Year’s Eve special with Ryan Seacrest right up to last year’s event.
