Tonight on AC360: Remembering Dick Clark

Television icon Dick Clark died from a heart attack at the age of 82.  He was nicknamed "America's oldest living teenager" during his time as host of "American Bandstand" in the 1950s. His career spanned more than six decades with the youngest generation recognizing him as the host of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve".

Anderson Cooper spoke with CNN's Candy Crowley about Clark's career as an entertainer and the founder of Dick Clark Productions. "There are very few people, I think, who came of age in the time that he did in television who also owned and produced television content," Anderson said. "His model of being a TV host and businessman is something that somebody like Ryan Seacrest has really followed and kind of taken even to a whole new level, but I think Dick Clark really broke the mold."

On Clark's connection to his viewers, Anderson said, "Everybody sort of feels like they knew him in one realm or another." He also discussed the entertainer's beloved New Year's Eve tradition and his youthful looks. Watch AC360° at 8 and 10 p.m. ET tonight for more on Dick Clark's life and legacy from those who knew him best.
