Dick Clark

Yeah, he was the “New Year’s Eve icon”, but he was so much more. He produced over a hundred television specials. He hosted American Bandstand for 25 years. He hosted various incarnations of Pyramid for over two decades, for thousands of episodes. He hosted the Bloopers & Practical Jokes shows with Ed McMahon for many years. Even if there had never been a Rockin’ Eve, he’d have been an icon. But, yes, he was iconic for braving the crowds and the weather for 25 years. And then he braved the judgments of many who thought he had no business going on camera to host after he had suffered a massive stroke.

So long to one of the greats.
