"American Bandstand" host Dick Clark, whose long-running television dance show helped rock 'n' roll win acceptance in mainstream America, has died at age 82, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

Clark, one of America's best-known TV personalities, parlayed his "Bandstand" fame into a career as a producer and host of dozens of other shows, including ABC's annual New Year's Eve broadcast from Times Square.

His youthful good looks -- which he maintained into his 70s -- won him the nickname of "America's oldest teenager." He suffered a stroke in 2004.
