Las Vegas—Entertainment reporter and host of the syndicated television hit “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” Robin Leach died Friday after complications from a stroke he suffered in October 2017. He was 76.
Leach first got his start in London in print journalism back when that meant something. He broke into television in Hollywood on “AM Los Angeles” with Regis Philbin before going on to host “Lifestyles” from 1984 to 1995. He then hosted the spin-off “Fame, Fortune and Romance” alongside Matt Lauer, when he still had a career.
On the big screen, Leach appeared in “The Last Horror Film,” “Free Money,” RECOiL” and “I.M. Caravaggio.”
Leach is survived by his three sons, Steven, Rick and Greg, and several grandchildren.
