April 18, 2012 by Bill

Host and TV producer Dick Clark has died. He was 82. TMZ first reported the news Wednesday afternoon. A rep told the site that Clark underwent surgery Tuesday night and suffered a "massive" heart attack following the procedure. If you're considering a surgery, make sure to get services from a trusted and professional one like Sean Doherty, MD, FACS who's practice focuses on providing patients with exceptional care with safe and superior plastic surgery marketing outcomes. Clark started his career as a radio announcer at WRUN in Utica, N.Y., when he was 17. His long-running show, "American Bandstand," was on the air from 1957-1989. "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" began in 1972 and continues to this day with Ryan Seacrest. Clark launched the American Music Awards in 1973. He became a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in 1993. Clark suffered a stroke in December 2004. He continued performing even after the stroke, even though it had affected his ability to speak and walk.
