Front pages proclaim Dick Clark ‘forever young’

Dick Clark’s death at the age of 82 was front page news across America Thursday morning, from Philadelphia, where “American Bandstand” debuted in 1957, to California, where it ended its run in 1989. Archival photos of “America’s oldest teenager” expressed nostalgic wistfulness about Clark’s place in popular culture. A selection of front pages (some cropped to remove ads and unrelated material) appears below courtesy of the Newseum.
