Dick Clark is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a stroke on Monday (Dec. 6). A spokesman for the legendary broadcaster tells Billboard.biz that Clark "is going to be fine."

Clark, 75, is perhaps best known for producing and hosting the original "American Bandstand" TV series and his annual New Year's Eve show on ABC. He is also an executive producer of the annual American Music Awards, Golden Globe Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards, as well as NBC's drama series "American Dreams." Earlier this year, Clark revealed that he has had Type 2 diabetes for the past decade.

Asked if Clark will recover in time for the "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" show set to air live Dec. 31 on ABC, his spokesperson says, "We hope so. That depends on what the doctors say."

Earlier this year, Clark announced plans to revive "American Bandstand" in partnership with "American Idol" creator Simon Fuller.
