Ryan Secrest is just one of MANY mourning the loss of the show biz great.
Countless lives were affected by the late Dick Clark, but few will miss Dick more than his staff at Dick Clark Productions.
We're told DCP held a company meeting to break news of their boss' passing to employees hours before the news got out to the public.
From what we hear from insiders:
"It was an emotional meeting."
We bet it was.
The staff plans to honor their hero with a permanent memorial in the office.
Memorial or not, it's going to be a loooong time before the memory of Dick Clark fades!
