The legendary host and TV producer Dick Clark died today from a heart attack at the age of 82-years-old. Best known as American Bandstand host, his charm and success created a huge following around the world for decades.
During last December’s New Year’s Eve final countdown show, while hosting alongside Ryan Seacrest, it was apparent his health was in danger. He inspired many and will leave a long legacy for all hosts who follow. Obviously Seacrest has positioned himself to carry the torch in his absence, learning the importance of owning your own content, from the master.
R.I.P. Dick Clark, you will be missed by your many fans…what a hard person to replace. I remember the days of American Bandstand clearly….and loved every minute of it.
