The 82-year-old longtime TV producer and host had been at St. John’s Hospital in L.A. after undergoing an outpatient procedure on Tuesday, according to TMZ. Clark reportedly suffered the heart attack following the procedure and died on Wednesday after unsuccessful attempts to resuscitate him.
Clark had a history of health problems. He suffered from Type 2 diabetes and in 2004, he had a stroke that forced him to retire as host of “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” the program he created in 1972. Though Ryan Seacrest has since taken over, Clark made annual appearances.
The small screen legend was married three times and has three children from his first two marriages. He is survived by his current wife Kari Wigton.
