(Reuters/The Wrap) Dick Clark has been cremated, his publicist told TheWrap.

According to the publicist, plans for a memorial service are “still being discussed.”

While memorial plans have not yet been finalized, the New York Post reports that Clark will be honored next New Year’s Eve in Times Square, where he televised the ball-dropping ceremony for decades.

Fans will be invited to share memories of Clark on one-inch-square pieces of confetti, which will be among the confetti that’s tossed out on Times Square when the year turns.

The former “American Bandstand” host died Wednesday at the age of 82 after suffering a heart attack.
