dc
Richard Augustus Wagstaff "Dick" Clark Jr.
(November 30, 1929 – April 18, 2012)

In 1952, WFIL-TV in Philadelphia began airing a show called Bob Horn’s
Bandstand
. Dick Clark had a similar show on the company’s radio station
(WFIL) and served as a regular substitute host when Bob Horn went on
vacation. After a drunk driving arrest in 1956, Horn was dismissed and
a 26-year-old Clark then became Bandstand’s permanent host. The
show was picked up by the ABC television network, renamed American
Bandstand
, and debuted nationally on August 5, 1957.
