With Video: Dick Clark Passes Away at 82

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Apr 18, 2012 - UPDATED: Apr 19, 2012

News outlets are reporting that creator and host of "American Bandstand" Dick Clark has died at the age of 82.

His publicist says he died of a massive heart attack.

Clark was the longtime host of "New Year's Rockin' Eve", and hosted "American Bandstand" for more than 30 years.

Clark suffered a stroke in 2004, which led to him taking a step back from hosting duties on subsequent New Year's Eve productions.
