     Host and TV producer Dick Clark has died. He was 82.

    Clark underwent surgery Tuesday night and suffered a “massive” heart attack following the procedure.

    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.
