No more Rockin’ Eve with Dick Clark. We’re sad to report that former disk jockey Dick Clark had died of a heart attack at the age of 82.
The 82-year-old, a successful TV producer and host of American Bandstand and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, was reportedly in Los Angeles’ St. John’s hospital after having an outpatient procedure performed Tuesday night, as first reported by TMZ.
Clark previous had a massive stroke in 2004. Following the event, he retired from hosting Rockin’ Eve, acquiescing his duties to Ryan Seacrest and only appearing for part of the broadcast and kiss his wife Kari Wigton at the stroke of midnight.
