TMZ: Dick Clark has died

|

Veteran television personality Dick Clark is shown in this undated publicity photograph released December 5, 2005.

TMZ is reporting that celebrated TV host and producer died today from a heart attack at age 82.

From the report:

Details surrounding his death are unclear, but Clark had suffered a significant stroke in 2004 — forcing him to retire from his hosting gig at “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” which he created in 1972.

Ryan Seacrest took over in 2006. Dick has co-hosted the show ever since.

Clark also hosted “American Bandstand” and “Pyramid.” He is survived by his wife Kari Wigton.

  2. Oh, where are my manners? I’m sorry; your prediction of the imminent demise of the LRO in post 5. You remember that prediction, don’t you? The one that in post 320 I asked if you would stand by. Which you would have known about if you had bothered to read the posts. But I understand; you’re way too busy saving the world universe to be bothered with keeping up with current events.
