The legendary television producer and longtime American Bandstand and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve host has passed away at the age of 82.

Dick Clark started his career in radio back in 1945. In 1952, he moved to the Philadelphia area and began working in radio. That radio station had a sister TV station, WFIL-TV (now WPVI), which was airing Bob Horn’s Bandstand.  Dick Clark became a regular fill-in host for the program and in 1957, the ABC television network picked-up the show, renamed it to American Bandstand, and the rest is history.

Throughout his career, he was involved in numerous television programs, including several versions of the Pyramid series of game shows, the American Music Awards, TVs Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and, of course, counting down the seconds to the new year from Times Square.

For now, Dick Clark… so long.
