1. VETERAN TV HOST DICK CLARK DIESThe legendary entertainer died Wednesday morning after suffering a "massive heart attack." He was 82. With American Bandstand in the 1950s, he changed the way the country listened to pop music. In 1972, he began hosting the New Year's Eve festivities on ABC, a holiday tradition that continued for decades. "He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world," said Ryan Seacrest, who co-hosted ABC's "Rockin' Eve" with Clark in recent years.
