TV legend, Dick Clark passed away today at the age of 82. Clark had a heart attack a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure at Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica.

For those young people out there that don’t know who he is, he is essentially who I’d say that Ryan Seacrest is grooming into being – the host of everything with a charm and likability that can’t be denied. Clark was also known as “the world’s oldest teenager” because of his boyish looks.

He was the host of “American Bandstand,” “The $25,000 Pyramid,” “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes,” the American Music Awards and of course NYE in NYC. That’s just to name a few of his credits. We send our condolences to his close friends and family.
