With famed host and producer Dick Clark passing away today at age 82 of a heart attack, the news reverberated throughout the NBCUniversal Summer Press Day 2012 with AMERICA’S GOT TALENT judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel chiming in about their feelings on the legendary Clark.
“I sat with Dick at a wedding and he was absolutely the best company and such a gentleman,” says Osbourne. “People like him don’t exist in the industry anymore. He’s irreplaceable.”
For Mandel, he used Clark as inspiration for managing the ups and downs of this business.
“I always looked up to him as an entrepreneur,” says Mandel. “And when I bumped into him, he was nothing but a gentlemen. He was very child-like. Nobody was more exited to be there. Whatever ailed him, he always wanted to be part of NEW YEAR’S ROCKIN’ EVE. He’ll be sorely missed in this business and our hearts. Our thoughts go out to his family.”
