Dick Clark — famed TV producer, and “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” host — died from a massive heart attack this morning … TMZ has learned.
He was 82.
Details surrounding his death are unclear, but Clark had suffered a significant stroke in 2004 — forcing him to retire from his hosting gig at “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” which he created in 1972.
Ryan Seacrest took over in 2006. Dick has co-hosted the show ever since.
Before suffering a stroke, Clark told Larry King he suffered from Type 2 diabetes.
