DICK CLARK DIES AT 82
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Longtime TV host Dick Clark has died at 82. TMZ reports Clark suffered a massive heart attack in Los Angeles this morning.
Dick Clark is best known as the host of American Bandstand. He also hosted the 80's game shows, $25,000 Pyramid and $100,000. Clark also hosted and created Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve on ABC. Clark suffered a serious stock in 2004 and in 2006, Ryan Seacrest took over hosting duties on New Year's Eve. Despite his declining health and changes to his voice, Clark still appeared on the show every year after to count down to the new year.
Game Show Network still airs repeats of his Pyramid game shows. No doubt they'll be airing a marathon tribute sometime soon.
