Daytime Emmys honouring Dick Clark

Los Angeles: The Daytime Emmy Awards will honour ‘American Bandstand’ and host Dick Clark as part of its primetime telecast on CBS next month.

Cher, Barry Manilow, Garth Brooks, Marie Osmond, Ann-Margret, Frankie Avalon, the Spinners, Jay Leno and Simon Cowell will salute the 80-year-old television icon during the June 27 ceremony in Las Vegas.

Clark, often dubbed ‘America`s oldest teenager,’ turned the Philadelphia-based dance show ‘American Bandstand’ into one of the biggest shows in television history. He went on to build a vast media empire, but has kept a low profile since suffering a stroke in 2004.
