New Year’s Eve: Dick Clark receives one more farewell
New Year’s Eve lost some of its luster in April.
Dick Clark, the music and TV mogul and frequent personality, died then, ending more than half a century in television. Part of his video legacy is “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” a late-night mainstay since the 1970s, with Clark long the host and the show even adding a prime-time component.
After he suffered a stroke in 2004, Clark missed that year’s telecast; he returned in 2005 but with a reduced role — and Ryan Seacrest as the de facto host. In 2008, the show was renamed “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.” That will still be the name again this year, and Clark will be part of the programming.
