As the legendary TV host, producer, and actor always said at the end of his shows, “For now, Dick Clark … so long.” Clark passed away Wednesday at the age of 82 of a heart attack, after being admitted to a Santa Monica hospital for an outpatient procedure a day earlier. Clark, long nicknamed “the world’s oldest teenager” for his boyish looks, became a household name in the 1950s when he created American Bandstand, which merged popular music with show business and was one of network TV’s longest-running series. Bandstand first aired nationally on ABC in 1957 and introduced some of the biggest names in music, from Buddy Holly to Madonna, until it stopped running in 1987. In 1972 Clark created New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which he hosted and produced solo until he suffered a stroke in 2004. The show has been broadcast on ABC from New York’s Times Square every New Year’s Eve since 1972, and Clark remained its cohost from 2005 through 2011 with Ryan Seacrest. His production company also launched popular game and contest shows like $25,000 Pyramid, NBC’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and the American Music Awards.
