Legendary Television Host Dick Clark Dead At 82 [VIDEO]
His real name was Richard Wagstaff Clark, and he began his career in the mailroom of a radio station being operated by his father and uncle. It wasn't long before bigger gigs came a calling, and in 1952, "Dick Clark's Caravan of Music" hit the airwaves on radio station WFIL in Philly.
In a cliche, the rest is history -- "American Bandstand", "$25,000 Pyramid", "Bloopers and Practical Jokes", and the "New Year's Rockin' Eve".
Rest in peace my friend. You will be deeply missed.
