TMZ is reporting that legendary television host and producer Dick Clark has died at the age of 82.

Clark died of a “massive” heart attack this morning, according to his publicist. In his final years his only television presence was during New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. The show was hosted by Ryan Seacrest following Clark’s stroke in 2004, but Clark continued to do the midnight countdown itself.

Below you can watch his final appearance on the show December 31, 2011.

Below is a clip of Dick Clark interviewing John Travolta in 1976 on American Bandstand:
