Dick Clark, the legendary TV host and producer, has passed away at 82.
Clark’s rep told TMZ that Clark had been hospitalized in L.A. after an outpatient procedure. He suffered a “massive heart attack” following the procedure, with attempts to resuscitate him being unsuccessful. Clark previously had a stroke in 2004.
Born in Mount Vernon, N.Y., on Nov. 30, 1929, Clark began his show business career before he graduated high school. He produced countless TV shows such as “American Bandstand.” He hosted “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” from 1972 until 2004, when declining health caused him to step down. Despite this, he had continued to make appearances on TV and radio since then. Clark is survived by a wife and three children.
